Description

The remote NewStart CGSL host, running version CORE 5.04 / MAIN 5.04, has ovmf packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities:

  • Stack overflow in corrupted bmp for EDK II may allow unprivileged user to potentially enable denial of service or elevation of privilege via local access. (CVE-2018-12181)

  • Buffer overflow in system firmware for EDK II may allow unauthenticated user to potentially enable escalation of privilege and/or denial of service via network access. (CVE-2019-0160)

  • Simultaneous Multi-threading (SMT) in processors can enable local users to exploit software vulnerable to timing attacks via a side-channel timing attack on 'port contention'. (CVE-2018-5407)

  • Stack overflow in XHCI for EDK II may allow an unauthenticated user to potentially enable denial of service via local access. (CVE-2019-0161)

  • Logic issue in variable service module for EDK II/UDK2018/UDK2017/UDK2015 may allow an authenticated user to potentially enable escalation of privilege, information disclosure and/or denial of service via local access. (CVE-2018-3613)

  • Bounds checking in Tianocompress before November 7, 2017 may allow an authenticated user to potentially enable an escalation of privilege via local access. (CVE-2017-5731)

  • REJECT DO NOT USE THIS CANDIDATE NUMBER. ConsultIDs: none. Reason: This candidate was in a CNA pool that was not assigned to any issues during 2017. Notes: none. (CVE-2017-5732, CVE-2017-5733, CVE-2017-5735)

  • REJECT DO NOT USE THIS CANDIDATE NUMBER. ConsultIDs: none. Reason: This candidate was withdrawn by its CNA. Notes: none. (CVE-2017-5734)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
