high Nessus Plugin ID 118500
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.


This update for lcms2 fixes the following security issues :

CVE-2016-10165: The Type_MLU_Read function allowed remote attackers to obtain sensitive information or cause a denial of service via an image with a crafted ICC profile, which triggered an out-of-bounds heap read (bsc#1021364).

CVE-2018-16435: A integer overflow was fixed in the AllocateDataSet function in cmscgats.c, that could lead to a heap-based buffer overflow in the SetData function via a crafted file in the second argument to cmsIT8LoadFromFile. (bsc#1108813)

Ensure that LUT stages match channel count (bsc#1026649).

sanitize input and output channels on MPE profiles (bsc#1026650).

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