F5 Networks BIG-IP : Linux Kernel vulnerability (SOL16473)

low Nessus Plugin ID 82931
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.

Description

net/bridge/netfilter/ebtables.c in the ebtables module in the netfilter framework in the Linux kernel before 2.6.33-rc4 does not require the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability for setting or modifying rules, which allows local users to bypass intended access restrictions and configure arbitrary network-traffic filtering via a modified ebtables application.

Solution

Upgrade to one of the non-vulnerable versions listed in the F5 Solution SOL16473.
