EulerOS 2.0 SP5 : poppler (EulerOS-SA-2019-2224)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 130686

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

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

- poppler through version 0.55.0 is vulnerable to an uncontrolled recursion in pdfunite resulting into potential denial-of-service.(CVE-2017-7515)

- An issue was discovered in Poppler 0.71.0. There is a reachable abort in Object.h, will lead to denial of service because EmbFile::save2 in FileSpec.cc lacks a stream check before saving an embedded file.(CVE-2018-19058)

- An issue was discovered in Poppler 0.71.0. There is a out-of-bounds read in EmbFile::save2 in FileSpec.cc, will lead to denial of service, as demonstrated by utils/pdfdetach.cc not validating embedded files before save attempts.(CVE-2018-19059)

- An issue was discovered in Poppler 0.71.0. There is a NULL pointer dereference in goo/GooString.h, will lead to denial of service, as demonstrated by utils/pdfdetach.cc not validating a filename of an embedded file before constructing a save path.(CVE-2018-19060)

- Poppler before 0.70.0 has a NULL pointer dereference in
_poppler_attachment_new when called from poppler_annot_file_attachment_get_attachment.(CVE-2018- 19149)

- A reachable Object::dictLookup assertion in Poppler 0.72.0 allows attackers to cause a denial of service due to the lack of a check for the dict data type, as demonstrated by use of the FileSpec class (in FileSpec.cc) in pdfdetach.(CVE-2018-20650)

- In Poppler 0.68.0, the Parser::getObj() function in Parser.cc may cause infinite recursion via a crafted file. A remote attacker can leverage this for a DoS attack.(CVE-2018-16646)

- An issue was discovered in Poppler 0.71.0. There is a memory leak in GfxColorSpace::setDisplayProfile in GfxState.cc, as demonstrated by pdftocairo.(CVE-2018-18897)

- In Poppler 0.72.0, PDFDoc::setup in PDFDoc.cc allows attackers to cause a denial-of-service (application crash caused by Object.h SIGABRT, because of a wrong return value from PDFDoc::setup) by crafting a PDF file in which an xref data structure is mishandled during extractPDFSubtype processing.(CVE-2018-20662)

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
