RHEL 7 : redis (RHSA-2019:0052)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 194134


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


The remote Redhat Enterprise Linux 7 host has a package installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the RHSA-2019:0052 advisory.

Redis is an advanced key-value store. It is often referred to as a data-structure server since keys can contain strings, hashes, lists, sets, and sorted sets. For performance, Redis works with an in-memory data set. You can persist it either by dumping the data set to disk every once in a while, or by appending each command to a log.

Security Fix(es):

* redis: Heap corruption in lua_cmsgpack.c (CVE-2018-11218)

* redis: Integer overflow in lua_struct.c:b_unpack() (CVE-2018-11219)

* redis: code execution via a crafted command line (CVE-2018-12326)

For more details about the security issue(s), including the impact, a CVSS score, and other related information, refer to the CVE page(s) listed in the References section.

Tenable has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Red Hat Enterprise Linux security advisory.

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


Update the RHEL redis package based on the guidance in RHSA-2019:0052.
