Medium Nessus Plugin ID 128923


The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.


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

- Integer overflow in the read_fragment_table_4 function in unsquash-4.c in Squashfs and sasquatch allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted input, which triggers a stack-based buffer overflow.(CVE-2015-4645)

- (1) unsquash-1.c, (2) unsquash-2.c, (3) unsquash-3.c, and (4) unsquash-4.c in Squashfs and sasquatch allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted input.(CVE-2015-4646)

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 squashfs-tools packages.
