EulerOS 2.0 SP3 : compat-libtiff3 (EulerOS-SA-2021-1770)

high Nessus Plugin ID 149107

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

According to the versions of the compat-libtiff3 package installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- 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)

- An integer overflow flaw was found in libtiff that exists in the tif_getimage.c file. This flaw allows an attacker to inject and execute arbitrary code when a user opens a crafted TIFF file. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to confidentiality, integrity, as well as system availability.(CVE-2020-35523)

- 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)

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 compat-libtiff3 packages.
