EulerOS 2.0 SP8 : binutils (EulerOS-SA-2020-1142)

high Nessus Plugin ID 133976
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 binutils packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- The demangle_template function in cplus-dem.c in GNU libiberty, as distributed in GNU Binutils 2.31.1, contains an integer overflow vulnerability (for 'Create an array for saving the template argument values') that can trigger a heap-based buffer overflow, as demonstrated by nm.(CVE-2018-20673)

- The demangle_template function in cplus-dem.c in GNU libiberty, as distributed in GNU Binutils 2.31.1, has a memory leak via a crafted string, leading to a denial of service (memory consumption), as demonstrated by cxxfilt, a related issue to CVE-2018-12698.(CVE-2018-20657)

- The get_count function in cplus-dem.c in GNU libiberty, as distributed in GNU Binutils 2.31, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (malloc called with the result of an integer-overflowing calculation) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted string, as demonstrated by c++filt.(CVE-2018-18483)

- An issue was discovered in GNU libiberty, as distributed in GNU Binutils 2.32.
simple_object_elf_match in simple-object-elf.c does not check for a zero shstrndx value, leading to an integer overflow and resultant heap-based buffer overflow.(CVE-2019-14250)

- An issue was discovered in GNU libiberty, as distributed in GNU Binutils 2.32. It is a heap-based buffer over-read in d_expression_1 in cp-demangle.c after many recursive calls.(CVE-2019-9070)

- An issue was discovered in the Binary File Descriptor (BFD) library (aka libbfd), as distributed in GNU Binutils 2.32. It is an attempted excessive memory allocation in elf_read_notes in elf.c.(CVE-2019-9076)

- An issue was discovered in the Binary File Descriptor (BFD) library (aka libbfd), as distributed in GNU Binutils 2.32. It is an out-of-bounds read leading to a SEGV in bfd_getl32 in libbfd.c, when called from pex64_get_runtime_function in pei-x86_64.c.(CVE-2019-9074)

- An issue was discovered in GNU libiberty, as distributed in GNU Binutils 2.32. It is a stack consumption issue in d_count_templates_scopes in cp-demangle.c after many recursive calls.(CVE-2019-9071)

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 binutils packages.
