EulerOS 2.0 SP1 : libXpm libXdmcp libICE (EulerOS-SA-2017-1211)

This script is Copyright (C) 2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.

Description :

According to the versions of the libXpm libXdmcp libICE packages
installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by
the following vulnerabilities :

- An integer overflow flaw leading to a heap-based buffer
overflow was found in libXpm. An attacker could use
this flaw to crash an application using libXpm via a
specially crafted XPM file. (CVE-2016-10164)

- It was discovered that libXdmcp used weak entropy to
generate session keys. On a multi-user system using
xdmcp, a local attacker could potentially use
information available from the process list to brute
force the key, allowing them to hijack other users'
sessions. (CVE-2017-2625)

- It was discovered that libICE used a weak entropy to
generate keys. A local attacker could potentially use
this flaw for session hijacking using the information
available from the process list. (CVE-2017-2626)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the EulerOS security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
