Amazon Linux 2 : SDL (ALAS-2020-1500)

high Nessus Plugin ID 141985
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 Amazon Linux 2 host is missing a security update.

Description

The version of tested product installed on the remote host is prior to tested version. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the ALAS2-2020-1500 advisory.

- SDL (Simple DirectMedia Layer) through 1.2.15 and 2.x through 2.0.9 has a buffer over-read in IMA_ADPCM_nibble in audio/SDL_wave.c. (CVE-2019-7572)

- SDL (Simple DirectMedia Layer) through 1.2.15 and 2.x through 2.0.9 has a heap-based buffer over-read in InitMS_ADPCM in audio/SDL_wave.c (inside the wNumCoef loop). (CVE-2019-7573)

- SDL (Simple DirectMedia Layer) through 1.2.15 and 2.x through 2.0.9 has a heap-based buffer over-read in IMA_ADPCM_decode in audio/SDL_wave.c. (CVE-2019-7574)

- SDL (Simple DirectMedia Layer) through 1.2.15 and 2.x through 2.0.9 has a heap-based buffer overflow in MS_ADPCM_decode in audio/SDL_wave.c. (CVE-2019-7575)

- SDL (Simple DirectMedia Layer) through 1.2.15 and 2.x through 2.0.9 has a heap-based buffer over-read in InitMS_ADPCM in audio/SDL_wave.c (outside the wNumCoef loop). (CVE-2019-7576)

- SDL (Simple DirectMedia Layer) through 1.2.15 and 2.x through 2.0.9 has a buffer over-read in SDL_LoadWAV_RW in audio/SDL_wave.c. (CVE-2019-7577)

- SDL (Simple DirectMedia Layer) through 1.2.15 and 2.x through 2.0.9 has a heap-based buffer over-read in InitIMA_ADPCM in audio/SDL_wave.c. (CVE-2019-7578)

- SDL (Simple DirectMedia Layer) through 1.2.15 and 2.x through 2.0.9 has a heap-based buffer over-read in Blit1to4 in video/SDL_blit_1.c. (CVE-2019-7635)

- SDL (Simple DirectMedia Layer) through 1.2.15 and 2.x through 2.0.9 has a heap-based buffer over-read in SDL_GetRGB in video/SDL_pixels.c. (CVE-2019-7636)

- SDL (Simple DirectMedia Layer) through 1.2.15 and 2.x through 2.0.9 has a heap-based buffer overflow in SDL_FillRect in video/SDL_surface.c. (CVE-2019-7637)

- SDL (Simple DirectMedia Layer) through 1.2.15 and 2.x through 2.0.9 has a heap-based buffer over-read in Map1toN in video/SDL_pixels.c. (CVE-2019-7638)

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

Solution

Run 'yum update SDL' to update your system.
