AlmaLinux 8 : virt:rhel (ALSA-2019:3345)

high Nessus Plugin ID 157624


The remote AlmaLinux host is missing one or more security updates.


The remote AlmaLinux 8 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the ALSA-2019:3345 advisory.

- An integer underflow issue exists in ntfs-3g 2017.3.23. A local attacker could potentially exploit this by running /bin/ntfs-3g with specially crafted arguments from a specially crafted directory to cause a heap buffer overflow, resulting in a crash or the ability to execute arbitrary code. In installations where /bin/ntfs-3g is a setuid-root binary, this could lead to a local escalation of privileges. (CVE-2019-9755)

- tcp_emu in slirp/tcp_subr.c (aka slirp/src/tcp_subr.c) in QEMU 3.0.0 uses uninitialized data in an snprintf call, leading to Information disclosure. (CVE-2019-9824)

- interface_release_resource in hw/display/qxl.c in QEMU 3.1.x through 4.0.0 has a NULL pointer dereference.

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


Update the affected packages.
