info Nessus Plugin ID 154253

Synopsis

A database running on the remote host is affected by a multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of Oracle NoSQL Database Enterprise running on the remote host is prior to 21.1.12. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the October 2021 CPU advisory.

- Security-in-Depth issue in Oracle NoSQL Database (component: Administration (Netty). This vulnerability cannot be exploited in the context of this product. (CVE-2021-21409)

- Security-in-Depth issue in Oracle NoSQL Database (component: Snappy frame decoder function). The Snappy frame decoder function doesn't restrict the chunk length which may lead to excessive memory usage. Beside this it also may buffer reserved skippable chunks until the whole chunk was received which may lead to excessive memory usage as well. This vulnerability can be triggered by supplying malicious input that decompresses to a very big size (via a network stream or a file) or by sending a huge skippable chunk.
(CVE-2021-37137)

- Security-in-Depth issue in Oracle NoSQL Database (component: Administration (Go). This vulnerability cannot be exploited in the context of this product. (CVE-2021-34558)

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

Solution

Upgrade to Oracle NoSQL Database Enterprise version 21.1.12 or later.
