This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in OpenEXR :

Multiple integer overflows in OpenEXR 1.2.2 and 1.6.1 allow
context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (application
crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unspecified vectors that
trigger heap-based buffer overflows, related to (1) the
Imf::PreviewImage::PreviewImage function and (2) compressor
constructors. NOTE: some of these details are obtained from third
party information (CVE-2009-1720).

The decompression implementation in the Imf::hufUncompress function in
OpenEXR 1.2.2 and 1.6.1 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a
denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary
code via vectors that trigger a free of an uninitialized pointer
(CVE-2009-1721).

This update provides fixes for these vulnerabilities.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)
CVSS Temporal Score : 7.5
(CVSS2#E:ND/RL:ND/RC:C)
