EulerOS Virtualization 3.0.2.6 : libtiff (EulerOS-SA-2021-1439)

high Nessus Plugin ID 147566

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS Virtualization host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

According to the versions of the libtiff package installed, the EulerOS Virtualization installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- The TIFFFetchNormalTag function in LibTiff 4.0.6 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read) via crafted TIFF_SETGET_C16ASCII or TIFF_SETGET_C32_ASCII tag values.(CVE-2016-9297)

- In LibTIFF 4.0.7, a memory leak vulnerability was found in the function OJPEGReadHeaderInfoSecTablesQTable in tif_ojpeg.c, which allows attackers to cause a denial of service via a crafted file.(CVE-2017-9404)

- The TIFFFetchNormalTag function in LibTiff 4.0.6 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and crash) by setting the tags TIFF_SETGET_C16ASCII or TIFF_SETGET_C32_ASCII to values that access 0-byte arrays. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2016-9297.(CVE-2016-9448)

- ** DISPUTED ** LibTIFF 4.0.8 has multiple memory leak vulnerabilities, which allow attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption), as demonstrated by tif_open.c, tif_lzw.c, and tif_aux.c. NOTE: Third parties were unable to reproduce the issue.(CVE-2017-16232)

- There is a heap based buffer overflow in tools/tiff2pdf.c of LibTIFF 4.0.8 via a PlanarConfig=Contig image, which causes a more than one hundred bytes out-of-bounds write (related to the ZIPDecode function in tif_zip.c). A crafted input may lead to a remote denial of service attack or an arbitrary code execution attack.(CVE-2017-11335)

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 libtiff packages.
