EulerOS 2.0 SP2 : cairo (EulerOS-SA-2019-2495)

high Nessus Plugin ID 131648


The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.


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

- Cairo is a 2D graphics library designed to provide high-quality display and print output. Currently supported output targets include the X Window System, OpenGL (via glitz), in-memory image buffers, and image files (PDF,PostScript, and SVG).Cairo is designed to produce consistent output on all output media while taking advantage of display hardware acceleration when available (e.g.through the X Render Extension or OpenGL).Security Fix(es):cairo-truetype-subset.c in cairo 1.15.6 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read) because of mishandling of an unexpected malloc(0) call.(CVE-2017-9814)Integer overflow in the write_png function in cairo 1.14.6 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (invalid pointer dereference) via a large svg file.(CVE-2016-9082)Cairo version 1.15.4 is vulnerable to a NULL pointer dereference related to the FT_Load_Glyph and FT_Render_Glyph resulting in an application crash.(CVE-2017-7475)

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.


Update the affected cairo packages.
