Oracle Linux 8 : go-toolset:ol8addon (ELSA-2022-14857)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 161946

Synopsis

The remote Oracle Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

The remote Oracle Linux 8 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the ELSA-2022-14857 advisory.

- regexp.Compile in Go before 1.16.15 and 1.17.x before 1.17.8 allows stack exhaustion via a deeply nested expression. (CVE-2022-24921)

- cmd/go in Go before 1.16.14 and 1.17.x before 1.17.7 can misinterpret branch names that falsely appear to be version tags. This can lead to incorrect access control if an actor is supposed to be able to create branches but not tags. (CVE-2022-23773)

- Rat.SetString in math/big in Go before 1.16.14 and 1.17.x before 1.17.7 has an overflow that can lead to Uncontrolled Memory Consumption. (CVE-2022-23772)

- Curve.IsOnCurve in crypto/elliptic in Go before 1.16.14 and 1.17.x before 1.17.7 can incorrectly return true in situations with a big.Int value that is not a valid field element. (CVE-2022-23806)

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

Solution
