The remote Ubuntu 18.04 LTS host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the USN-4594-1 advisory.

  • A heap corruption of type CWE-120 exists in quassel version 0.12.4 in quasselcore in void DataStreamPeer::processMessage(const QByteArray &msg;) datastreampeer.cpp line 62 that allows an attacker to execute code remotely. (CVE-2018-1000178)

  • A NULL Pointer Dereference of CWE-476 exists in quassel version 0.12.4 in the quasselcore void CoreAuthHandler::handle(const Login &msg;) coreauthhandler.cpp line 235 that allows an attacker to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2018-1000179)

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