[R4] SecurityCenter 5.0.1 Fixes Third-party Library

High

Synopsis

SecurityCenter is potentially impacted by a vulnerability in PHP that was recently disclosed and fixed. Note that due to the time involved in doing a full analysis of the issue, Tenable has opted to patch the included version of PHP as a precaution, and to save time.

PHP escapeshellcmd() / escapeshellarg() ! Character Handling Unspecified Issue - PHP contains a flaw in the escapeshellcmd() and escapeshellarg() functions. The issue is triggered as the ! character is not properly handled. This may allow an attacker to e.g. substitute environment variables and have an unspecified impact.

Please note that Tenable strongly recommends that SecurityCenter be installed on a subnet that is not Internet addressable.

Solution

Tenable has released a patch for SecurityCenter 4.8.2 that addresses this vulnerability. This patch applies PHP 5.4.43, which is not affected. Upgrade information can be obtained from:
