high Nessus Plugin ID 154443


The remote NewStart CGSL host is affected by a vulnerability.


The remote NewStart CGSL host, running version CORE 5.05 / MAIN 5.05, has gd packages installed that are affected by a vulnerability:

- Integer overflow in the _gd2GetHeader function in gd_gd2.c in the GD Graphics Library (aka libgd) before 2.2.3, as used in PHP before 5.5.37, 5.6.x before 5.6.23, and 7.x before 7.0.8, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow and application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted chunk dimensions in an image. (CVE-2016-5766)

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


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