EulerOS 2.0 SP2 : binutils (EulerOS-SA-2020-2330)

high Nessus Plugin ID 142255


The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.


According to the versions of the binutils packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- 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 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)

- 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 the Binary File Descriptor (BFD) library (aka libbfd), as distributed in GNU Binutils 2.32. It is an attempted excessive memory allocation in _bfd_elf_slurp_version_tables in elf.c.(CVE-2019-9073)

- apply_relocations in readelf.c in GNU Binutils 2.32 contains an integer overflow that allows attackers to trigger a write access violation (in byte_put_little_endian function in elfcomm.c) via an ELF file, as demonstrated by readelf.(CVE-2019-14444)

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.


Update the affected binutils packages.
