Synopsis

The remote machine is affected by a vulnerability.

Description

The remote NewStart CGSL host, running version CORE 5.04 / MAIN 5.04, has cpio packages installed that are affected by a vulnerability:

- In all versions of cpio before 2.13 does not properly validate input files when generating TAR archives.
When cpio is used to create TAR archives from paths an attacker can write to, the resulting archive may contain files with permissions the attacker did not have or in paths he did not have access to. Extracting those archives from a high-privilege user without carefully reviewing them may lead to the compromise of the system. (CVE-2019-14866)

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

Solution

Upgrade the vulnerable CGSL cpio packages. Note that updated packages may not be available yet. Please contact ZTE for more information.
