F5 Networks BIG-IP : TMM vulnerability (K19634255)

high Nessus Plugin ID 184331

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 tested version. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the K19634255 advisory.

- On F5 BIG-IP 14.0.0, 13.0.0-13.1.0, 12.1.0-12.1.3, or 11.5.1-11.6.3 specifically crafted HTTP responses, when processed by a Virtual Server with an associated QoE profile that has Video enabled, may cause TMM to incorrectly buffer response data causing the TMM to restart resulting in a Denial of Service.
(CVE-2018-5535)

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 K19634255.
