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

High Nessus Plugin ID 103069


The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.


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.


Update the affected libXpm libXdmcp libICE packages.
