New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 6.7

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

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

- An out of bounds read in the function d2alaw_array() in alaw.c of libsndfile 1.0.28 may lead to a remote DoS attack or information disclosure, related to mishandling of the NAN and INFINITY floating-point values.(CVE-2017-14245)

- An out of bounds read in the function d2ulaw_array() in ulaw.c of libsndfile 1.0.28 may lead to a remote DoS attack or information disclosure, related to mishandling of the NAN and INFINITY floating-point values.(CVE-2017-14246)

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 libsndfile packages.
