New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 3.6

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

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

- The function WavpackVerifySingleBlock in open_utils.c in libwavpack.a in WavPack through 5.1.0 allows attackers to cause a denial-of-service (out-of-bounds read and application crash) via a crafted WavPack Lossless Audio file, as demonstrated by wvunpack.(CVE-2018-19841)

- The function WavpackPackInit in pack_utils.c in libwavpack.a in WavPack through 5.1.0 allows attackers to cause a denial-of-service (resource exhaustion caused by an infinite loop) via a crafted wav audio file because WavpackSetConfiguration64 mishandles a sample rate of zero.(CVE-2018-19840)

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 wavpack packages.
