EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 3.0.2.0 : libtiff (EulerOS-SA-2021-2119)

high Nessus Plugin ID 151343

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

According to the versions of the libtiff package installed, the EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- ** RESERVED ** This candidate has been reserved by an organization or individual that will use it when announcing a new security problem. When the candidate has been publicized, the details for this candidate will be provided.(CVE-2017-16232)

- 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)

- An out-of-bounds heap read was discovered in libtiff. A crafted file could cause the application to crash or, potentially, disclose process memory.(CVE-2016-9297)

- A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found within libtiff's tiff2pdf tool. A remote attacker could potentially exploit this flaw to execute arbitrary code by tricking a user into converting a specially crafted file using the tiff2pdf tool.(CVE-2017-11335)

- 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)

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.
