install-nw

Downloads Resources over HTTP

Severity: high

Overview

Affected versions of install-nw insecurely download an executable over an unencrypted HTTP connection.

In scenarios where an attacker has a privileged network position, it is possible to intercept the response and replace the executable with a malicious one, resulting in code execution on the system running install-nw.

Remediation

Update to version 1.1.5 or later.
