EulerOS 2.0 SP5 : libarchive (EulerOS-SA-2019-1973)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 129130

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

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

- An error in the lha_read_file_header_1() function (archive_read_support_format_lha.c) in libarchive 3.2.2 allows remote attackers to trigger an out-of-bounds read memory access and subsequently cause a crash via a specially crafted archive.(CVE-2017-5601)

- read_header in archive_read_support_format_rar.c in libarchive 3.3.2 suffers from an off-by-one error for UTF-16 names in RAR archives, leading to an out-of-bounds read in archive_read_format_rar_read_header.(CVE-2017-14502)

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 libarchive packages.
