FreeBSD : go -- multiple vulnerabilities (b1b039ec-dbfc-11ee-9165-901b0e9408dc)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 191672



The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.


The version of FreeBSD installed on the remote host is prior to tested version. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the b1b039ec-dbfc-11ee-9165-901b0e9408dc advisory.

- When following an HTTP redirect to a domain which is not a subdomain match or exact match of the initial domain, an http.Client does not forward sensitive headers such as Authorization or Cookie. For example, a redirect from to will forward the Authorization header, but a redirect to will not. A maliciously crafted HTTP redirect could cause sensitive headers to be unexpectedly forwarded. (CVE-2023-45289)

- When parsing a multipart form (either explicitly with Request.ParseMultipartForm or implicitly with Request.FormValue, Request.PostFormValue, or Request.FormFile), limits on the total size of the parsed form were not applied to the memory consumed while reading a single form line. This permits a maliciously crafted input containing very long lines to cause allocation of arbitrarily large amounts of memory, potentially leading to memory exhaustion. With fix, the ParseMultipartForm function now correctly limits the maximum size of form lines. (CVE-2023-45290)

- Verifying a certificate chain which contains a certificate with an unknown public key algorithm will cause Certificate.Verify to panic. This affects all crypto/tls clients, and servers that set Config.ClientAuth to VerifyClientCertIfGiven or RequireAndVerifyClientCert. The default behavior is for TLS servers to not verify client certificates. (CVE-2024-24783)

- The ParseAddressList function incorrectly handles comments (text within parentheses) within display names.
Since this is a misalignment with conforming address parsers, it can result in different trust decisions being made by programs using different parsers. (CVE-2024-24784)

- If errors returned from MarshalJSON methods contain user controlled data, they may be used to break the contextual auto-escaping behavior of the html/template package, allowing for subsequent actions to inject unexpected content into templates. (CVE-2024-24785)

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


Update the affected packages.
