Synopsis :

The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.

Description :

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

- Heap-based buffer overflow in the horizontalDifference8
function in tif_pixarlog.c in LibTIFF 4.0.6 and earlier
allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(crash) or execute arbitrary code via a crafted TIFF
image to tiffcp.(CVE-2016-8670)

- The gdImageCreate function in the GD Graphics Library
(aka libgd) before 2.2.4 allows remote attackers to
cause a denial of service (system hang) via an
oversized image.(CVE-2016-9317)

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.
