EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 126.96.36.199 : libX11 (EulerOS-SA-2019-1948)
High Nessus Plugin ID 128951
SynopsisThe remote EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 host is missing multiple security updates.
DescriptionAccording to the versions of the libX11 packages installed, the EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- It was discovered that libX11 does not properly validate input coming from the server, causing XListExtensions() and XGetFontPath() functions to produce an invalid list of elements that in turn make XFreeExtensionsList() and XFreeFontPath() access invalid memory. An attacker who can either configure a malicious X server or modify the data coming from one, could use this flaw to crash the application using libX11, resulting in a denial of service.(CVE-2018-14598)
- An off-by-one error has been discovered in libX11 in functions XGetFontPath(), XListExtensions(), and XListFonts(). An attacker who can either configure a malicious X server or modify the data coming from one could use this flaw to make the program crash or have other unspecified effects, caused by the memory corruption.(CVE-2018-14599)
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected libX11 packages.
