EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 3.0.3.0 : libsndfile (EulerOS-SA-2019-2351)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 131516
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 Virtualization for ARM 64 host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

According to the versions of the libsndfile package installed, the EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Heap-based Buffer Overflow in the psf_binheader_writef function in common.c in libsndfile through 1.0.28 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact.(CVE-2017-12562)

- It was discovered the fix for CVE-2018-19758 (libsndfile) was not complete and still allows a read beyond the limits of a buffer in wav_write_header() function in wav.c. A local attacker may use this flaw to make the application crash.(CVE-2019-3832)

- An issue was discovered in libsndfile 1.0.28. There is a buffer over-read in the function i2alaw_array in alaw.c that will lead to a denial of service.(CVE-2018-19662)

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.
