EulerOS 2.0 SP2 : poppler (EulerOS-SA-2017-1230)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 103088

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

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

- A stack-based buffer overflow was found in the poppler library. An attacker could create a malicious PDF file that would cause applications that use poppler (such as Evince) to crash, or potentially execute arbitrary code when opened. (CVE-2017-9775)

- An integer overflow leading to heap-based buffer overflow was found in the poppler library. An attacker could create a malicious PDF file that would cause applications that use poppler (such as Evince) to crash, or potentially execute arbitrary code when opened. (CVE-2017-9776)

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.

Solution

Update the affected poppler packages.
