medium Nessus Plugin ID 160808


The remote NewStart CGSL host is affected by a vulnerability.


The remote NewStart CGSL host, running version MAIN 6.02, has sane-backends packages installed that are affected by a vulnerability:

- A NULL pointer dereference in sanei_epson_net_read in SANE Backends before 1.0.30 allows a malicious device connected to the same local network as the victim to cause a denial of service, aka GHSL-2020-075.

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