Synopsis

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

Description

The remote SUSE Linux SUSE15 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the openSUSE-SU-2021:2971-1 advisory.

- An integer underflow issue exists in ntfs-3g 2017.3.23. A local attacker could potentially exploit this by running /bin/ntfs-3g with specially crafted arguments from a specially crafted directory to cause a heap buffer overflow, resulting in a crash or the ability to execute arbitrary code. In installations where /bin/ntfs-3g is a setuid-root binary, this could lead to a local escalation of privileges. (CVE-2019-9755)

- In Tuxera ntfs-3g versions < 2021.8.22, when a specially crafted NTFS attribute is supplied to the function ntfs_get_attribute_value, a heap buffer overflow can occur allowing for memory disclosure or denial of service. The vulnerability is caused by an out-of-bound buffer access which can be triggered by mounting a crafted ntfs partition. The root cause is a missing consistency check after reading an MFT record : the bytes_in_use field should be less than the bytes_allocated field. When it is not, the parsing of the records proceeds into the wild. (CVE-2021-33285)

- In Tuxera NTFS-3G versions < 2021.8.22, when a specially crafted unicode string is supplied in an NTFS image a heap buffer overflow can occur and allow for code execution. (CVE-2021-33286)

- Tuxera NTFS-3G versions < 2021.8.22, when specially crafted NTFS attributes are read in the function ntfs_attr_pread_i, a heap buffer overflow can occur and allow for writing to arbitrary memory or denial of service of the application. (CVE-2021-33287)

- In Tuxera NTFS-3G versions < 2021.8.22, when a specially crafted MFT section is supplied in an NTFS image a heap buffer overflow can occur and allow for code execution. (CVE-2021-33289)

- In Tuxera NTFS-3G versions < 2021.8.22, when a specially crafted NTFS inode pathname is supplied in an NTFS image a heap buffer overflow can occur resulting in memory disclosure, denial of service and even code execution. (CVE-2021-35266)

- In Tuxera NTFS-3G versions < 2021.8.22, a stack buffer overflow can occur when correcting differences in the MFT and MFTMirror allowing for code execution or escalation of privileges when setuid-root.
(CVE-2021-35267)

- Tuxera NTFS-3G versions < 2021.8.22, when a specially crafted NTFS inode is loaded in the function ntfs_inode_real_open, a heap buffer overflow can occur allowing for code execution and escalation of privileges. (CVE-2021-35268)

- Tuxera NTFS-3G versions < 2021.8.22, when a specially crafted NTFS attribute from the MFT is setup in the function ntfs_attr_setup_flag, a heap buffer overflow can occur allowing for code execution and escalation of privileges. (CVE-2021-35269)

- A crafted NTFS image can cause a NULL pointer dereference in ntfs_extent_inode_open in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22. (CVE-2021-39251)

- A crafted NTFS image can cause an out-of-bounds read in ntfs_ie_lookup in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22.
(CVE-2021-39252)

- A crafted NTFS image can cause an out-of-bounds read in ntfs_runlists_merge_i in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22.
(CVE-2021-39253)

- A crafted NTFS image can trigger an out-of-bounds read, caused by an invalid attribute in ntfs_attr_find_in_attrdef, in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22. (CVE-2021-39255)

- A crafted NTFS image can cause a heap-based buffer overflow in ntfs_inode_lookup_by_name in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22. (CVE-2021-39256)

- A crafted NTFS image with an unallocated bitmap can lead to a endless recursive function call chain (starting from ntfs_attr_pwrite), causing stack consumption in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22. (CVE-2021-39257)

- A crafted NTFS image can cause out-of-bounds reads in ntfs_attr_find and ntfs_external_attr_find in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22. (CVE-2021-39258)

- A crafted NTFS image can trigger an out-of-bounds access, caused by an unsanitized attribute length in ntfs_inode_lookup_by_name, in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22. (CVE-2021-39259)

- A crafted NTFS image can cause an out-of-bounds access in ntfs_inode_sync_standard_information in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22. (CVE-2021-39260)

- A crafted NTFS image can cause a heap-based buffer overflow in ntfs_compressed_pwrite in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22. (CVE-2021-39261)

- A crafted NTFS image can cause an out-of-bounds access in ntfs_decompress in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22.
(CVE-2021-39262)

- A crafted NTFS image can trigger a heap-based buffer overflow, caused by an unsanitized attribute in ntfs_get_attribute_value, in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22. (CVE-2021-39263)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
