Synopsis :

The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.

Description :

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

- Multiple flaws have been discovered in libtiff. A
remote attacker could exploit these flaws to cause a
crash or memory corruption and, possibly, execute
arbitrary code by tricking an application linked
against libtiff into processing specially crafted
files. (CVE-2016-9533, CVE-2016-9534, CVE-2016-9535)

- Multiple flaws have been discovered in various libtiff
tools (tiff2pdf, tiffcrop, tiffcp, bmp2tiff). By
tricking a user into processing a specially crafted
file, a remote attacker could exploit these flaws to
cause a crash or memory corruption and, possibly,
execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user
running the libtiff tool. (CVE-2015-8870,
CVE-2016-5652, CVE-2016-9540, CVE-2016-9537,
CVE-2016-9536)

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.
