F5 Networks BIG-IP : SUSE coreutils vulnerabilities (SOL16859)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 85916

Synopsis

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

Description

The SUSE coreutils-i18n.patch for GNU coreutils allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (segmentation fault and crash) via a long string to the sort command, when using the (1) -d or (2) -M switch, which triggers a stack-based buffer overflow in the alloca function.

Solution

Upgrade to one of the non-vulnerable versions listed in the F5 Solution SOL16859.
