EulerOS Virtualization 2.10.1 : libssh (EulerOS-SA-2023-2542)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 179279

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS Virtualization host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

According to the versions of the libssh package installed, the EulerOS Virtualization installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A NULL pointer dereference was found In libssh during re-keying with algorithm guessing. This issue may allow an authenticated client to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2023-1667)

- A vulnerability was found in libssh, where the authentication check of the connecting client can be bypassed in the`pki_verify_data_signature` function in memory allocation problems. This issue may happen if there is insufficient memory or the memory usage is limited. The problem is caused by the return value `rc,` which is initialized to SSH_ERROR and later rewritten to save the return value of the function call `pki_key_check_hash_compatible.` The value of the variable is not changed between this point and the cryptographic verification. Therefore any error between them calls `goto error` returning SSH_OK.
(CVE-2023-2283)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the EulerOS security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected libssh packages.
