New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS Virtualization host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

According to the versions of the perl-DBI package installed, the EulerOS Virtualization installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- An untrusted pointer dereference flaw was found in Perl-DBI < 1.643. A local attacker who is able to manipulate calls to dbd_db_login6_sv() could cause memory corruption, affecting the service's availability.(CVE-2020-14392)

- An issue was discovered in the DBI module through 1.643 for Perl. DBD::File drivers can open files from folders other than those specifically passed via the f_dir attribute in the data source name (DSN). NOTE: this issue exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2014-10401.(CVE-2014-10402)

- A buffer overflow was found in perl-DBI < 1.643 in DBI.xs. A local attacker who is able to supply a string longer than 300 characters could cause an out-of-bounds write, affecting the availability of the service or integrity of data.(CVE-2020-14393)

- An issue was discovered in the DBI module before 1.643 for Perl. The hv_fetch() documentation requires checking for NULL and the code does that. But, shortly thereafter, it calls SvOK(profile), causing a NULL pointer dereference.(CVE-2019-20919)

- An issue was discovered in the DBI module before 1.632 for Perl. DBD::File drivers can open files from folders other than those specifically passed via the f_dir attribute.(CVE-2014-10401)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the EulerOS security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected perl-DBI packages.
