SUSE SLED12 / SLES12 Security Update : lcms2 (SUSE-SU-2018:3545-1)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 118500


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.
