Debian DLA-1581-1 : uriparser security update

critical Nessus Plugin ID 119053
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.

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in uriparser, an Uniform Resource Identifiers (URIs) parsing library.

CVE-2018-19198

UriQuery.c allows an out-of-bounds write via a uriComposeQuery* or uriComposeQueryEx* function because the '&' character is mishandled in certain contexts.

CVE-2018-19199

UriQuery.c allows an integer overflow via a uriComposeQuery* or uriComposeQueryEx* function because of an unchecked multiplication.

CVE-2018-19200

UriCommon.c allows attempted operations on NULL input via a uriResetUri* function.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version 0.8.0.1-2+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your uriparser packages.

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

Solution

Upgrade the affected liburiparser-dev, and liburiparser1 packages.
