Amazon Linux 2 : pcs (ALAS-2023-1905)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 170448


The remote Amazon Linux 2 host is missing a security update.


The version of pcs installed on the remote host is prior to 0.9.169-3. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the ALAS2-2023-1905 advisory.

- jQuery before 3.4.0, as used in Drupal, Backdrop CMS, and other products, mishandles jQuery.extend(true, {}, ...) because of Object.prototype pollution. If an unsanitized source object contained an enumerable
__proto__ property, it could extend the native Object.prototype. (CVE-2019-11358)

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


Run 'yum update pcs' to update your system.
