SUSE SLED15 / SLES15 Security Update : glib2 (SUSE-SU-2021:0778-1)

high Nessus Plugin ID 147796

Language:

Synopsis

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

This update for glib2 fixes the following issues :

CVE-2021-27218: g_byte_array_new_take takes a gsize as length but stores in a guint, this patch will refuse if the length is larger than guint. (bsc#1182328)

CVE-2021-27219: g_memdup takes a guint as parameter and sometimes leads into an integer overflow, so add a g_memdup2 function which uses gsize to replace it. (bsc#1182362)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
