NewStart CGSL CORE 5.05 / MAIN 5.05 : spice-gtk Vulnerability (NS-SA-2021-0164)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 154504


The remote NewStart CGSL host is affected by a vulnerability.


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

- Multiple buffer overflow vulnerabilities were found in the QUIC image decoding process of the SPICE remote display system, before spice-0.14.2-1. Both the SPICE client (spice-gtk) and server are affected by these flaws. These flaws allow a malicious client or server to send specially crafted messages that, when processed by the QUIC image compression algorithm, result in a process crash or potential code execution.

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