According to the versions of the exiv2 packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Exiv2::Internal::PngChunk::parseTXTChunk in Exiv2 v0.26 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer over-read) via a crafted image file, a different vulnerability than CVE-2018-10999.(CVE-2018-16336)

- In Exiv2 0.26 and previous versions, PngChunk::readRawProfile in pngchunk_int.cpp may cause a denial of service (application crash due to a heap-based buffer over-read) via a crafted PNG file.(CVE-2018-19535)

- A PngChunk::parseChunkContent uncontrolled memory allocation in Exiv2 through 0.27.1 allows an attacker to cause a denial of service (crash due to an std::bad_alloc exception) via a crafted PNG image file.(CVE-2019-13112)

- Exiv2 0.26 has a Null Pointer Dereference in the Exiv2::DataValue::toLong function in value.cpp, related to crafted metadata in a TIFF file.(CVE-2017-18005)

- There is a heap-based buffer overflow in the Exiv2::us2Data function of types.cpp in Exiv2 0.26. A Crafted input will lead to a denial of service attack.(CVE-2017-14865)
