EulerOS 2.0 SP2 : giflib (EulerOS-SA-2019-2498)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 131651


The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.


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

- In GIFLIB before 2019-02-16, a malformed GIF file triggers a divide-by-zero exception in the decoder function DGifSlurp in dgif_lib.c if the height field of the ImageSize data structure is equal to zero.(CVE-2019-15133)

- Heap-based buffer overflow in giffix.c in giffix in giflib 5.1.1 allows attackers to cause a denial of service (program crash) via crafted image and logical screen width fields in a GIF file.(CVE-2015-7555)

- Heap-based buffer overflow in util/gif2rgb.c in gif2rgb in giflib 5.1.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via the background color index in a GIF file.(CVE-2016-3977)

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 giflib packages.
