Synopsis

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description

LibVNCServer was updated to fix two security issues.

These security issues were fixed :

- CVE-2018-7225: Missing input sanitization inside rfbserver.c rfbProcessClientNormalMessage() (bsc#1081493).

- CVE-2016-9942: Heap-based buffer overflow in ultra.c allowed remote servers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted FramebufferUpdate message with the Ultra type tile, such that the LZO payload decompressed length exceeds what is specified by the tile dimensions (bsc#1017712).

- CVE-2016-9941: Heap-based buffer overflow in rfbproto.c allowed remote servers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted FramebufferUpdate message containing a subrectangle outside of the client drawing area (bsc#1017711). This update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-12:Update update project.
