EulerOS 2.0 SP2 : poppler (EulerOS-SA-2017-1260)

high Nessus Plugin ID 104285

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 :

- In Poppler 0.59.0, a NULL Pointer Dereference exists in the XRef::parseEntry() function in XRef.cc via a crafted PDF document.(CVE-2017-14517)

- In Poppler 0.59.0, a floating point exception exists in the isImageInterpolationRequired() function in Splash.cc via a crafted PDF document.(CVE-2017-14518)

- In Poppler 0.59.0, memory corruption occurs in a call to Object::streamGetChar in Object.h after a repeating series of Gfx::display, Gfx::go, Gfx::execOp, Gfx::opShowText, and Gfx::doShowText calls (aka a Gfx.cc infinite loop).(CVE-2017-14519)

- In Poppler 0.59.0, a floating point exception occurs in Splash::scaleImageYuXd() in Splash.cc, which may lead to a potential attack when handling malicious PDF files.(CVE-2017-14520)

- In Poppler 0.59.0, a floating point exception occurs in the ImageStream class in Stream.cc, which may lead to a potential attack when handling malicious PDF files.(CVE-2017-14617)

- In Poppler 0.59.0, memory corruption occurs in a call to Object::dictLookup() in Object.h after a repeating series of Gfx::display, Gfx::go, Gfx::execOp, Gfx::opFill, Gfx::doPatternFill, Gfx::doTilingPatternFill and Gfx::drawForm calls (aka a Gfx.cc infinite loop), a different vulnerability than CVE-2017-14519.(CVE-2017-14929)

- The FoFiTrueType::getCFFBlock function in FoFiTrueType.cc in Poppler 0.59.0 has a NULL pointer dereference vulnerability due to lack of validation of a table pointer, which allows an attacker to launch a denial of service attack.(CVE-2017-14977)

- The FoFiType1C::convertToType0 function in FoFiType1C.cc in Poppler 0.59.0 has a heap-based buffer over-read vulnerability if an out-of-bounds font dictionary index is encountered, which allows an attacker to launch a denial of service attack.(CVE-2017-14976)

- The FoFiType1C::convertToType0 function in FoFiType1C.cc in Poppler 0.59.0 has a NULL pointer dereference vulnerability because a data structure is not initialized, which allows an attacker to launch a denial of service attack.(CVE-2017-14975)

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
