EulerOS 2.0 SP8 : exiv2 (EulerOS-SA-2020-1502)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 135735
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 exiv2 packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- An integer overflow in Exiv2 through 0.27.1 allows an attacker to cause a denial of service (SIGSEGV) via a crafted PNG image file, because PngImage::readMetadata mishandles a chunkLength - iccOffset subtraction.(CVE-2019-13109)

- 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)

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 exiv2 packages.
