  Date Alert Description
5.4 2020-07-15 CVE-2020-5765

Nessus 8.10.0 and earlier were found to contain a Stored XSS vulnerability due to improper validation of input during scan configuration. An authenticated, remote attacker could potentially exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code in a user's session. Tenable has implemented additional input validation mechanisms to correct this issue in Nessus 8.11.0.

6.5 2019-10-23 CVE-2019-3982

Nessus versions 8.6.0 and earlier were found to contain a Denial of Service vulnerability due to improper validation of specific imported scan types. An authenticated, remote attacker could potentially exploit this vulnerability to cause a Nessus scanner to become temporarily unresponsive.

8.1 2019-08-15 CVE-2019-3974

Nessus 8.5.2 and earlier on Windows platforms were found to contain an issue where certain system files could be overwritten arbitrarily, potentially creating a denial of service condition.

3.3 2019-07-01 CVE-2019-3962

Content Injection vulnerability in Tenable Nessus prior to 8.5.0 may allow an authenticated, local attacker to exploit this vulnerability by convincing another targeted Nessus user to view a malicious URL and use Nessus to send fraudulent messages. Successful exploitation could allow the authenticated adversary to inject arbitrary text into the feed status, which will remain saved post session expiration.

6.1 2019-06-25 CVE-2019-3961

Nessus versions 8.4.0 and earlier were found to contain a reflected XSS vulnerability due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker could potentially exploit this vulnerability via a specially crafted request to execute arbitrary script code in a users browser session.

5.9 2019-02-27 CVE-2019-1559

If an application encounters a fatal protocol error and then calls SSL_shutdown() twice (once to send a close_notify, and once to receive one) then OpenSSL can respond differently to the calling application if a 0 byte record is received with invalid padding compared to if a 0 byte record is received with an invalid MAC. If the application then behaves differently based on that in a way that is detectable to the remote peer, then this amounts to a padding oracle that could be used to decrypt data. In order for this to be exploitable "non-stitched" ciphersuites must be in use. Stitched ciphersuites are optimised implementations of certain commonly used ciphersuites. Also the application must call SSL_shutdown() twice even if a protocol error has occurred (applications should not do this but some do anyway). Fixed in OpenSSL 1.0.2r (Affected 1.0.2-1.0.2q).

5.4 2019-02-11 CVE-2019-3923

Nessus versions 8.2.1 and earlier were found to contain a stored XSS vulnerability due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An authenticated, remote attacker could potentially exploit this vulnerability via a specially crafted request to execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session. Tenable has released Nessus 8.2.2 to address this issue.

4.7 2018-11-15 CVE-2018-5407

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'.

6.5 2018-05-18 CVE-2018-1148

In Nessus before 7.1.0, Session Fixation exists due to insufficient session management within the application. An authenticated attacker could maintain system access due to session fixation after a user password change.

5.4 2018-05-18 CVE-2018-1147

In Nessus before 7.1.0, a XSS vulnerability exists due to improper input validation. A remote authenticated attacker could create and upload a .nessus file, which may be viewed by an administrator allowing for the execution of arbitrary script code in a user's browser session. In other scenarios, XSS could also occur by altering variables from the Advanced Settings.

7 2018-03-20 CVE-2018-1141

When installing Nessus to a directory outside of the default location, Nessus versions prior to 7.0.3 did not enforce secure permissions for sub-directories. This could allow for local privilege escalation if users had not secured the directories in the installation location.

7.5 2018-03-04 CVE-2017-18214

The moment module before 2.19.3 for Node.js is prone to a regular expression denial of service via a crafted date string, a different vulnerability than CVE-2016-4055.

7.4 2017-08-09 CVE-2017-11506

When linking a Nessus scanner or agent to Tenable.io or other manager, Nessus 6.x before 6.11 does not verify the manager's TLS certificate when making the initial outgoing connection. This could allow man-in-the-middle attacks.

6.5 2017-01-23 CVE-2016-4055

The duration function in the moment package before 2.11.2 for Node.js allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (CPU consumption) via a long string, aka a "regular expression Denial of Service (ReDoS)."
