high Nessus Plugin ID 131667
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 host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

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

- The parse_encoding function in type1/t1load.c in FreeType before 2.5.3 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via a 'broken number-with-base' in a Postscript stream, as demonstrated by 8#garbage.(CVE-2014-9745)

- The t42_parse_encoding function in type42/t42parse.c in FreeType before 2.5.4 does not properly update the current position for immediates-only mode, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via a Type42 font.(CVE-2014-9747)

- FreeType before 2.6.1 has a buffer over-read in skip_comment in psaux/psobjs.c because ps_parser_skip_PS_token is mishandled in an FT_New_Memory_Face operation.(CVE-2015-9382)

- FreeType before 2.6.2 has a heap-based buffer over-read in tt_cmap14_validate in sfnt/ttcmap.c.(CVE-2015-9383)

- FreeType before 2.6.1 has a heap-based buffer over-read in T1_Get_Private_Dict in type1/t1parse.c.(CVE-2015-9381)

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 freetype packages.
