high Nessus Plugin ID 160826


The remote NewStart CGSL host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The remote NewStart CGSL host, running version CORE 5.04 / MAIN 5.04, has exiv2 packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities:

- Exiv2 0.27.2 allows attackers to trigger a crash in Exiv2::getULong in types.cpp when called from Exiv2::Internal::CiffDirectory::readDirectory in crwimage_int.cpp, because there is no validation of the relationship of the total size to the offset and size. (CVE-2019-17402)

- ** REJECT ** DO NOT USE THIS CANDIDATE NUMBER. ConsultIDs: CVE-2021-29457. Reason: This candidate is a duplicate of CVE-2021-29457. Notes: All CVE users should reference CVE-2021-29457 instead of this candidate. All references and descriptions in this candidate have been removed to prevent accidental usage. (CVE-2021-31291)

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


Upgrade the vulnerable CGSL exiv2 packages. Note that updated packages may not be available yet. Please contact ZTE for more information.
