Golang < 1.21.8, 1.22.x < 1.22.1 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Plugin ID 191709


An application installed on the remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of Golang running on the remote host is prior to 1.21.8 or 1.22.x prior to 1.22.1. It is, therefore, is affected by multiple vulnerabilities:

- A maliciously crafted HTTP redirect could cause sensitive headers to be unexpectedly forwarded. (CVE-2023-45289)

- 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, 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.


Upgrade to Golang Go version 1.21.8, 1.22.1, or later.
