Tenable Sensor Proxy < 1.0.8 Multiple Vulnerabilities (TNS-2023-28)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 179955


An instance of Sensor Proxy installed on the remote system is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


According to its self-reported version, the Tenable Sensor Proxy running on the remote host is version 1.0.7. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the TNS-2023-28 advisory.

- Sensor Proxy leverages third-party software to help provide underlying functionality. One of the third- party components (OpenSSL) was found to contain vulnerabilities, and updated versions have been made available by the provider. Out of caution and in line with best practice, Tenable has opted to upgrade these components to address the potential impact of the issues. Sensor Proxy 1.0.8 updates OpenSSL to version 3.0.10 to address the identified vulnerabilities. Tenable has released Sensor Proxy 1.0.8 to address these issues. (CVE-2023-0465, CVE-2023-0466, CVE-2023-1255, CVE-2023-2650, CVE-2023-3446, CVE-2023-3817)

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


Upgrade to Tenable Sensor Proxy 1.0.8 or later.
