EulerOS 2.0 SP1 : binutils (EulerOS-SA-2018-1098)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 109496
SynopsisThe remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.
DescriptionAccording to the versions of the binutils packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- In the coff_pointerize_aux function in coffgen.c in the Binary File Descriptor (BFD) library (aka libbfd), as distributed in GNU Binutils 2.30, an index is not validated, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (segmentation fault) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted file, as demonstrated by objcopy of a COFF object.(CVE-2018-7208)
- The display_debug_ranges function in dwarf.c in GNU Binutils 2.30 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (integer overflow and application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted ELF file, as demonstrated by objdump.(CVE-2018-7643)
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected binutils packages.
