EulerOS 2.0 SP1 : evince (EulerOS-SA-2017-1221)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 103079


The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.


According to the version of the evince packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :

- It was found that evince did not properly sanitize the command line which is run to untar Comic Book Tar (CBT) files, thereby allowing command injection. A specially crafted CBT file, when opened by evince or evince-thumbnailer, could execute arbitrary commands in the context of the evince program. (CVE-2017-1000083)

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 evince package.
