SUSE SLES15 Security Update : nginx (SUSE-SU-2022:4192-1)

high Nessus Plugin ID 168166

Language:

Synopsis

The remote SUSE host is missing a security update.

Description

The remote SUSE Linux SLES15 host has a package installed that is affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the SUSE- SU-2022:4192-1 advisory.

- ALPACA is an application layer protocol content confusion attack, exploiting TLS servers implementing different protocols but using compatible certificates, such as multi-domain or wildcard certificates. A MiTM attacker having access to victim's traffic at the TCP/IP layer can redirect traffic from one subdomain to another, resulting in a valid TLS session. This breaks the authentication of TLS and cross- protocol attacks may be possible where the behavior of one protocol service may compromise the other at the application layer. (CVE-2021-3618)

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

Solution

Update the affected nginx package.
