Debian DLA-1142-1 : libav security update

High Nessus Plugin ID 104056

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in libav :

CVE-2015-8365

The smka_decode_frame function in libavcodec/smacker.c does not verify that the data size is consistent with the number of channels, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds array access) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted Smacker data.

CVE-2017-7208

The decode_residual function in libavcodec allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (buffer over-read) or obtain sensitive information from process memory via a crafted h264 video file.

CVE-2017-7862

The decode_frame function in libavcodec/pictordec.c is vulnerable to an out-of-bounds write caused by a heap-based buffer overflow.

CVE-2017-9992

The decode_dds1 function in libavcodec/dfa.c allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (Heap-based buffer overflow and application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted file.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 6:0.8.21-0+deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libav packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
