Golang < 1.21.10, 1.22.x < 1.22.3 Code Execution

medium Nessus Plugin ID 196900


An application installed on the remote Windows host is affected by a code execution vulnerability.


The version of Golang running on the remote host is prior to 1.21.10 or 1.22.x prior to 1.22.3. It is, therefore, affected by a code execution vulnerability. On Darwin, building a Go module which contains CGO can trigger arbitrary code execution when using the Apple version of ld, due to usage of the -lto_library flag in a '#cgo LDFLAGS' directive.

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 1.21.10, 1.22.3, or later.
