F5 Networks BIG-IP : OpenSSH vulnerability (K12252011)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 167056

Synopsis

The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.

Description

The version of F5 Networks BIG-IP installed on the remote host is prior to 15.1.10 / 16.1.4 / 17.1.1. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the K12252011 advisory.

- An issue was discovered in OpenSSH 7.9. Due to missing character encoding in the progress display, a malicious server (or Man-in-The-Middle attacker) can employ crafted object names to manipulate the client output, e.g., by using ANSI control codes to hide additional files being transferred. This affects refresh_progress_meter() in progressmeter.c. (CVE-2019-6109)

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

Solution

Upgrade to one of the non-vulnerable versions listed in the F5 Solution K12252011.
