Security Updates for Microsoft .NET Core (October 2022)

high Nessus Plugin ID 166054


The Microsoft .NET core installations on the remote host are affected by a privilege escalation vulnerability.


A privilege escalation vulnerability exists in .NET core 6.0 < 6.0.10 and .NET Core 3.1 < 3.1.30. An authenticated, local attacker can exploit this, via the NuGet client, to cause the user to execute arbitrary code.

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


Update .NET Core Runtime to version 3.1.30 or 6.0.10.
