Synopsis

The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates for container-tools:rhel8.

Description

The remote Redhat Enterprise Linux 8 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the RHSA-2024:3254 advisory.

The container-tools module contains tools for working with containers, notably podman, buildah, skopeo, and runc.

Security Fix(es):

* buildah: full container escape at build time (CVE-2024-1753)

* golang: net/http/httputil: ReverseProxy should not forward unparseable query parameters (CVE-2022-2880)

* golang: regexp/syntax: limit memory used by parsing regexps (CVE-2022-41715)

* golang-protobuf: encoding/protojson, internal/encoding/json: infinite loop in protojson.Unmarshal when unmarshaling certain forms of invalid JSON (CVE-2024-24786)

For more details about the security issue(s), including the impact, a CVSS score, acknowledgments, 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.

Solution

Update the RHEL container-tools:rhel8 package based on the guidance in RHSA-2024:3254.
