Partial information disclosure in SNX client for Linux before build 800008302 (CVE-2021-30357) Technical Level
  • SSL Network Extender client for Linux before build 800008302 reveals part of the contents of the configuration file supplied, which allows partial disclosure of the files to which the user did not have access.

SNX can accept files with connection commands. If such a file contains wrong commands, SNX prints the line with unrecognized command. Since SNX runs as ROOT, an attacker can supply any file on the system and get one line of its content. If the file contains sensitive information, the attacker can get part of it.


Install this hotfix package on your Security Gateway to upgrade the SNX to a non-vulnerable version:
