high Nessus Plugin ID 124954
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 EulerOS Virtualization host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

According to the versions of the flac package installed, the EulerOS Virtualization installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way flac decoded FLAC audio files. An attacker could create a specially crafted FLAC audio file that could cause an application using the flac library to crash or execute arbitrary code when the file was read.(CVE-2014-9028)

- A buffer over-read flaw was found in the way flac processed certain ID3v2 metadata. An attacker could create a specially crafted FLAC audio file that could cause an application using the flac library to crash when the file was read.(CVE-2014-8962)

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.

Solution

Update the affected flac packages.
