EulerOS 2.0 SP3 : libgxps (EulerOS-SA-2020-1401)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 135530

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.

Description

According to the version of the libgxps package installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :

- There is a stack-based buffer over-read in calling GLib in the function gxps_images_guess_content_type of gxps-images.c in libgxps through 0.3.0 because it does not reject negative return values from a g_input_stream_read call. A crafted input will lead to a remote denial of service attack.(CVE-2018-10767)

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 libgxps package.
