Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

The remote Fedora 33 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the FEDORA-2021-fba11d37ee advisory.

- Buffer overflow in the lldp_decode function in daemon/protocols/lldp.c in lldpd before 0.8.0 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via vectors involving large management addresses and TLV boundaries. (CVE-2015-8011)

- A flaw was found in multiple versions of OpenvSwitch. Specially crafted LLDP packets can cause memory to be lost when allocating data to handle specific optional TLVs, potentially causing a denial of service.
The highest threat from this vulnerability is to system availability. (CVE-2020-27827)

- A vulnerability was found in openvswitch. A limitation in the implementation of userspace packet parsing can allow a malicious user to send a specially crafted packet causing the resulting megaflow in the kernel to be too wide, potentially causing a denial of service. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to system availability. (CVE-2020-35498)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Update the affected 2:dpdk and / or openvswitch packages.
