EulerOS 2.0 SP8 : exiv2 (EulerOS-SA-2019-1784)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 127021


The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.


According to the versions of the exiv2 packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Exiv2::isoSpeed in easyaccess.cpp in Exiv2 v0.27-RC2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and application crash) via a crafted file.(CVE-2018-19607)

- There is an infinite loop in the Exiv2::Image::printIFDStructure function of image.cpp in Exiv2 0.27-RC1. A crafted input will lead to a remote denial of service attack.(CVE-2018-18915)

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.


Update the affected exiv2 packages.
