EulerOS 2.0 SP9 : python-cryptography (EulerOS-SA-2021-2278)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 152311
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 EulerOS host is missing a security update.

Description

According to the version of the python-cryptography package installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :

- In the cryptography package before 3.3.2 for Python, certain sequences of update calls to symmetrically encrypt multi-GB values could result in an integer overflow and buffer overflow, as demonstrated by the Fernet class.(CVE-2020-36242)

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 python-cryptography package.
