Security Bulletin

This security bulletin contains one medium risk vulnerability.

1) Resource exhaustion

EUVDB-ID: #VU22634

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1: 6.5 [CVSS:3.1/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:H/E:U/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2019-13555

CWE-ID: CWE-400 - Uncontrolled Resource Consumption ('Resource Exhaustion')

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to perform a denial of service (DoS) attack.

The vulnerability exists due to improper resource management. A remote attacker can trigger resource exhaustion and cause the FTP service to enter a denial-of-service condition dependent on the timing at which a remote attacker connects to the FTP server on the affected CPU modules.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.
