F5 Local Security Checks

2 years ago
The remote host is missing a security patch.
The rock_continue function in fs/isofs/rock.c in the Linux kernel through 3.18.1 does not restrict the number of Rock Ridge continuation entries, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (infinite loop, and system crash or hang) via a crafted iso9660 image. (CVE-2014-9420)
Checks if a vulnerable version is present on the target host.
See the referenced vendor advisory for a solution.
