GLSA-200804-05 : NX: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code
High Nessus Plugin ID 31836
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200804-05 (NX: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code)
Multiple integer overflow and buffer overflow vulnerabilities have been discovered in the X.Org X server as shipped by NX and NX Node (vulnerabilities 1-4 in GLSA 200801-09).
A remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities via unspecified vectors, leading to the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user on the machine running the NX server.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll NX Node users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=net-misc/nxnode-3.1.0-r2' All NX users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=net-misc/nx-3.1.0-r1'
