NewStart CGSL CORE 5.05 / MAIN 5.05 : dbus Vulnerability (NS-SA-2021-0136)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 154561

Synopsis

The remote NewStart CGSL host is affected by a vulnerability.

Description

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

- An issue was discovered in dbus >= 1.3.0 before 1.12.18. The DBusServer in libdbus, as used in dbus- daemon, leaks file descriptors when a message exceeds the per-message file descriptor limit. A local attacker with access to the D-Bus system bus or another system service's private AF_UNIX socket could use this to make the system service reach its file descriptor limit, denying service to subsequent D-Bus clients. (CVE-2020-12049)

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

Solution

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