EulerOS 2.0 SP3 : libsndfile (EulerOS-SA-2019-2616)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 132151
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 libsndfile package installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- The psf_fwrite function in file_io.c in libsndfile allows attackers to cause a denial of service (divide-by-zero error and application crash) via unspecified vectors related to the headindex variable.(CVE-2014-9756)

- 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)

- In libsndfile 1.0.28, a divide-by-zero error exists in the function double64_init() in double64.c, which may lead to DoS when playing a crafted audio file.(CVE-2017-14634)

- In libsndfile 1.0.25 (fixed in 1.0.26), a divide-by-zero error exists in the function wav_w64_read_fmt_chunk() in wav_w64.c, which may lead to DoS when playing a crafted audio file.(CVE-2017-16942)

- In libsndfile before 1.0.28, an error in the 'flac_buffer_copy()' function (flac.c) can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted FLAC file.(CVE-2017-7585)

- In libsndfile before 1.0.28, an error in the 'header_read()' function (common.c) when handling ID3 tags can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted FLAC file.(CVE-2017-7586)

- In libsndfile before 1.0.28, an error in the 'flac_buffer_copy()' function (flac.c) can be exploited to cause a segmentation violation (with write memory access) via a specially crafted FLAC file during a resample attempt, a similar issue to CVE-2017-7585.(CVE-2017-7741)

- In libsndfile before 1.0.28, an error in the 'flac_buffer_copy()' function (flac.c) can be exploited to cause a segmentation violation (with read memory access) via a specially crafted FLAC file during a resample attempt, a similar issue to CVE-2017-7585.(CVE-2017-7742)

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.
