high Nessus Plugin ID 191748


The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.


The remote Redhat Enterprise Linux 8 / 9 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the RHSA-2024:1057 advisory.

Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform provides an enterprise framework for building, deploying and managing IT automation at scale. IT Managers can provide top-down guidelines on how automation is applied to individual teams, while automation developers retain the freedom to write tasks that leverage existing knowledge without the overhead. Ansible Automation Platform makes it possible for users across an organization to share, vet, and manage automation content by means of a simple, powerful, and agentless language.

Security Fix(es):

* automation-eda-controller / ansible-rulebook / ansible-automation-platform-installer: Insecure websocket used when interacting with EDA server (CVE-2024-1657)

* python3-django/python39-django: denial-of-service in 'intcomma' template filter (CVE-2024-24680)

* python3-jinja2/python39-jinja2: HTML attribute injection when passing user input as keys to xmlattr filter (CVE-2024-22195)

* python3-aiohttp/python39-aiohttp: CRLF injection if user controls the HTTP method using aiohttp client (CVE-2023-49082)

* python3-aiohttp/python39-aiohttp: HTTP request modification (CVE-2023-49081)

* python3-aiohttp/python39-aiohttp: numerous issues in HTTP parser with header parsing (CVE-2023-47627)

* python3-pycryptodomex/python39-pycryptodomex: side-channel leakage for OAEP decryption in PyCryptodome and pycryptodomex (CVE-2023-52323)

* python3-pillow/python39-pillow: uncontrolled resource consumption when textlength in an ImageDraw instance operates on a long text argument (CVE-2023-44271)

* python3-pygments/python39-pygments: ReDoS in pygments (CVE-2022-40896)
