critical Nessus Plugin ID 147398
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote machine is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The remote NewStart CGSL host, running version CORE 5.04 / MAIN 5.04, has curl packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities:

- Heap buffer overflow in the TFTP protocol handler in cURL 7.19.4 to 7.65.3. (CVE-2019-5482)

- curl 7.20.0 through 7.70.0 is vulnerable to improper restriction of names for files and other resources that can lead too overwriting a local file when the -J flag is used. (CVE-2020-8177)

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 curl packages. Note that updated packages may not be available yet. Please contact ZTE for more information.
