Synopsis

The remote machine is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The remote NewStart CGSL host, running version CORE 5.05 / MAIN 5.05, has exiv2 packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities:

- In Exiv2 0.26, an out-of-bounds read in IptcData::printStructure in iptc.c could result in a crash or information leak, related to the == 0x1c case. (CVE-2018-9305)

- In Exiv2 0.26, there is a heap-based buffer over-read in the Exiv2::IptcData::printStructure function in iptc.cpp, related to the != 0x1c case. Remote attackers can exploit this vulnerability to cause a denial of service via a crafted TIFF file.
(CVE-2017-17724)

- An issue was discovered in Exiv2 v0.26. The function Exiv2::DataValue::copy in value.cpp has a NULL pointer dereference. (CVE-2018-17282)

- There is an infinite loop in the Exiv2::Image::printIFDStructure function of image.cpp in Exiv2 0.27-RC1. A crafted input will lead to a remote denial of service attack. (CVE-2018-18915)

- CiffDirectory::readDirectory() at crwimage_int.cpp in Exiv2 0.26 has excessive stack consumption due to a recursive function, leading to Denial of service.
(CVE-2018-17581)

- In Exiv2 0.26, Exiv2::IptcParser::decode in iptc.cpp (called from psdimage.cpp in the PSD image reader) may suffer from a denial of service (heap-based buffer over- read) caused by an integer overflow via a crafted PSD image file. (CVE-2018-19107)

- In Exiv2 0.26, Exiv2::PsdImage::readMetadata in psdimage.cpp in the PSD image reader may suffer from a denial of service (infinite loop) caused by an integer overflow via a crafted PSD image file. (CVE-2018-19108)

- In Exiv2 0.26 and previous versions, PngChunk::readRawProfile in pngchunk_int.cpp may cause a denial of service (application crash due to a heap-based buffer over-read) via a crafted PNG file.
(CVE-2018-19535)

- Exiv2::isoSpeed in easyaccess.cpp in Exiv2 v0.27-RC2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and application crash) via a crafted file. (CVE-2018-19607)

- There is a SEGV in Exiv2::Internal::TiffParserWorker::findPrimaryGroups of tiffimage_int.cpp in Exiv2 0.27-RC3. A crafted input will lead to a remote denial of service attack.
(CVE-2018-20097)

- There is an infinite loop in Exiv2::Jp2Image::encodeJp2Header of jp2image.cpp in Exiv2 0.27-RC3. A crafted input will lead to a remote denial of service attack. (CVE-2018-20099)

- Exiv2 0.26 has integer overflows in LoaderTiff::getData() in preview.cpp, leading to an out- of-bounds read in Exiv2::ValueType::setDataArea in value.hpp. (CVE-2018-12264)

- Exiv2 0.26 has an integer overflow in the LoaderExifJpeg class in preview.cpp, leading to an out-of-bounds read in Exiv2::MemIo::read in basicio.cpp. (CVE-2018-12265)

- In types.cpp in Exiv2 0.26, a large size value may lead to a SIGABRT during an attempt at memory allocation for an Exiv2::Internal::PngChunk::zlibUncompress call.
(CVE-2018-10958)

- An issue was discovered in Exiv2 0.26. readMetadata in jp2image.cpp allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (SIGABRT) by triggering an incorrect Safe::add call. (CVE-2018-10998)

- The tEXtToDataBuf function in pngimage.cpp in Exiv2 through 0.26 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted file.
(CVE-2018-10772)

- In Exiv2 0.26, jpgimage.cpp allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (image.cpp Exiv2::Internal::stringFormat out-of-bounds read) via a crafted file. (CVE-2018-8976)

- In Exiv2 0.26, the Exiv2::Internal::printCsLensFFFF function in canonmn_int.cpp allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (invalid memory access) via a crafted file. (CVE-2018-8977)

- Exiv2 0.26 has a heap-based buffer over-read in WebPImage::decodeChunks in webpimage.cpp.
(CVE-2018-14046)

- In Exiv2 0.26, the Exiv2::PngImage::printStructure function in pngimage.cpp allows remote attackers to cause an information leak via a crafted file.
(CVE-2018-11037)

- There is a heap-based buffer over-read in the Exiv2::tEXtToDataBuf function of pngimage.cpp in Exiv2 0.27-RC3. A crafted input will lead to a remote denial of service attack. (CVE-2018-20096)

- There is a heap-based buffer over-read in Exiv2::Jp2Image::encodeJp2Header of jp2image.cpp in Exiv2 0.27-RC3. A crafted input will lead to a remote denial of service attack. (CVE-2018-20098)

- An issue was discovered in Exiv2 0.26. The Exiv2::Internal::PngChunk::parseTXTChunk function has a heap-based buffer over-read. (CVE-2018-10999)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
