EulerOS 2.0 SP5 : libsndfile (EulerOS-SA-2019-2208)

high Nessus Plugin ID 130670
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

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

- In libsndfile version 1.0.28, an error in the 'aiff_read_chanmap()' function (aiff.c) can be exploited to cause an out-of-bounds read memory access via a specially crafted AIFF file.(CVE-2017-6892)

- The sd2_parse_rsrc_fork function in sd2.c in libsndfile allows attackers to have unspecified impact via vectors related to a (1) map offset or (2) rsrc marker, which triggers an out-of-bounds read.(CVE-2014-9496)

- The flac_buffer_copy function in flac.c in libsndfile 1.0.28 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (buffer overflow and application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted audio file.(CVE-2017-8361)

- In libsndfile before 1.0.28, an error in the 'flac_buffer_copy()' function (flac.c) can be exploited to cause a segmentation violation (with write memory access) via a specially crafted FLAC file during a resample attempt, a similar issue to CVE-2017-7585.(CVE-2017-7741)

- In libsndfile before 1.0.28, an error in the 'flac_buffer_copy()' function (flac.c) can be exploited to cause a segmentation violation (with read memory access) via a specially crafted FLAC file during a resample attempt, a similar issue to CVE-2017-7585.(CVE-2017-7742)

- In libsndfile before 1.0.28, an error in the 'flac_buffer_copy()' function (flac.c) can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted FLAC file.(CVE-2017-7585)

- An out of bounds read in the function d2ulaw_array() in ulaw.c of libsndfile 1.0.28 may lead to a remote DoS attack or information disclosure, related to mishandling of the NAN and INFINITY floating-point values.(CVE-2017-14246)

- An out of bounds read in the function d2alaw_array() in alaw.c of libsndfile 1.0.28 may lead to a remote DoS attack or information disclosure, related to mishandling of the NAN and INFINITY floating-point values.(CVE-2017-14245)

- The function d2ulaw_array() in ulaw.c of libsndfile 1.0.29pre1 may lead to a remote DoS attack (SEGV on unknown address 0x000000000000), a different vulnerability than CVE-2017-14246.(CVE-2017-17457)

- The function d2alaw_array() in alaw.c of libsndfile 1.0.29pre1 may lead to a remote DoS attack (SEGV on unknown address 0x000000000000), a different vulnerability than CVE-2017-14245.(CVE-2017-17456)

- In libsndfile 1.0.28, a divide-by-zero error exists in the function double64_init() in double64.c, which may lead to DoS when playing a crafted audio file.(CVE-2017-14634)

- The psf_fwrite function in file_io.c in libsndfile allows attackers to cause a denial of service (divide-by-zero error and application crash) via unspecified vectors related to the headindex variable.(CVE-2014-9756)

- In libsndfile before 1.0.28, an error in the 'header_read()' function (common.c) when handling ID3 tags can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted FLAC file.(CVE-2017-7586)

- The flac_buffer_copy function in flac.c in libsndfile 1.0.28 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (invalid read and application crash) via a crafted audio file.(CVE-2017-8362)

- The flac_buffer_copy function in flac.c in libsndfile 1.0.28 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer over-read and application crash) via a crafted audio file.(CVE-2017-8363)

- The i2les_array function in pcm.c in libsndfile 1.0.28 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (buffer over-read and application crash) via a crafted audio file.(CVE-2017-8365)

- In libsndfile 1.0.25 (fixed in 1.0.26), a divide-by-zero error exists in the function wav_w64_read_fmt_chunk() in wav_w64.c, which may lead to DoS when playing a crafted audio file.(CVE-2017-16942)

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 libsndfile packages.
