Description

The remote AlmaLinux 8 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the ALSA-2020:1577 advisory.

- Exiv2 0.26 has a Null Pointer Dereference in the Exiv2::DataValue::toLong function in value.cpp, related to crafted metadata in a TIFF file. (CVE-2017-18005)

- The Exiv2::Jp2Image::readMetadata function in jp2image.cpp in Exiv2 0.26 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (excessive memory allocation) via a crafted file. (CVE-2018-4868)

- In Exiv2 0.26, an assertion failure in BigTiffImage::readData in bigtiffimage.cpp results in an abort.
(CVE-2018-9303)

- In Exiv2 0.26, a divide by zero in BigTiffImage::printIFD in bigtiffimage.cpp could result in denial of service. (CVE-2018-9304)

- In Exiv2 0.26, an out-of-bounds read in IptcData::printStructure in iptc.c could result in a crash or information leak, related to the == 0x1c case. (CVE-2018-9305)

- ** REJECT ** DO NOT USE THIS CANDIDATE NUMBER. ConsultIDs: CVE-2017-17724. Reason: This candidate is a reservation duplicate of CVE-2017-17724. Notes: All CVE users should reference CVE-2017-17724 instead of this candidate. All references and descriptions in this candidate have been removed to prevent accidental usage. (CVE-2018-9306)

- The tEXtToDataBuf function in pngimage.cpp in Exiv2 through 0.26 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted file.
(CVE-2018-10772)

- In Exiv2 0.26, the Exiv2::PngImage::printStructure function in pngimage.cpp allows remote attackers to cause an information leak via a crafted file. (CVE-2018-11037)

- samples/geotag.cpp in the example code of Exiv2 0.26 misuses the realpath function on POSIX platforms (other than Apple platforms) where glibc is not used, possibly leading to a buffer overflow.
(CVE-2018-14338)

- Exiv2::d2Data in types.cpp in Exiv2 v0.26 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow) via a crafted image file. (CVE-2018-17229)

- Exiv2::ul2Data in types.cpp in Exiv2 v0.26 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap- based buffer overflow) via a crafted image file. (CVE-2018-17230)

- An issue was discovered in Exiv2 v0.26. The function Exiv2::DataValue::copy in value.cpp has a NULL pointer dereference. (CVE-2018-17282)

- CiffDirectory::readDirectory() at crwimage_int.cpp in Exiv2 0.26 has excessive stack consumption due to a recursive function, leading to Denial of service. (CVE-2018-17581)

- There is an infinite loop in the Exiv2::Image::printIFDStructure function of image.cpp in Exiv2 0.27-RC1.
A crafted input will lead to a remote denial of service attack. (CVE-2018-18915)

- In Exiv2 0.26, Exiv2::IptcParser::decode in iptc.cpp (called from psdimage.cpp in the PSD image reader) may suffer from a denial of service (heap-based buffer over-read) caused by an integer overflow via a crafted PSD image file. (CVE-2018-19107)

- In Exiv2 0.26, Exiv2::PsdImage::readMetadata in psdimage.cpp in the PSD image reader may suffer from a denial of service (infinite loop) caused by an integer overflow via a crafted PSD image file.
(CVE-2018-19108)

- In Exiv2 0.26 and previous versions, PngChunk::readRawProfile in pngchunk_int.cpp may cause a denial of service (application crash due to a heap-based buffer over-read) via a crafted PNG file. (CVE-2018-19535)

- Exiv2::isoSpeed in easyaccess.cpp in Exiv2 v0.27-RC2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and application crash) via a crafted file. (CVE-2018-19607)

- There is a heap-based buffer over-read in the Exiv2::tEXtToDataBuf function of pngimage.cpp in Exiv2 0.27-RC3. A crafted input will lead to a remote denial of service attack. (CVE-2018-20096)

- There is a SEGV in Exiv2::Internal::TiffParserWorker::findPrimaryGroups of tiffimage_int.cpp in Exiv2 0.27-RC3. A crafted input will lead to a remote denial of service attack. (CVE-2018-20097)

- There is a heap-based buffer over-read in Exiv2::Jp2Image::encodeJp2Header of jp2image.cpp in Exiv2 0.27-RC3. A crafted input will lead to a remote denial of service attack. (CVE-2018-20098)

- There is an infinite loop in Exiv2::Jp2Image::encodeJp2Header of jp2image.cpp in Exiv2 0.27-RC3. A crafted input will lead to a remote denial of service attack. (CVE-2018-20099)

- An issue was discovered in Exiv2 0.27. There is infinite recursion at Exiv2::Image::printTiffStructure in the file image.cpp. This can be triggered by a crafted file. It allows an attacker to cause Denial of Service (Segmentation fault) or possibly have unspecified other impact. (CVE-2019-9143)

- An integer overflow in Exiv2 through 0.27.1 allows an attacker to cause a denial of service (SIGSEGV) via a crafted PNG image file, because PngImage::readMetadata mishandles a chunkLength - iccOffset subtraction.
(CVE-2019-13109)

- A WebPImage::decodeChunks integer overflow in Exiv2 through 0.27.1 allows an attacker to cause a denial of service (large heap allocation followed by a very long running loop) via a crafted WEBP image file.
(CVE-2019-13111)

- A PngChunk::parseChunkContent uncontrolled memory allocation in Exiv2 through 0.27.1 allows an attacker to cause a denial of service (crash due to an std::bad_alloc exception) via a crafted PNG image file.
(CVE-2019-13112)

- Exiv2 through 0.27.1 allows an attacker to cause a denial of service (crash due to assertion failure) via an invalid data location in a CRW image file. (CVE-2019-13113)

- http.c in Exiv2 through 0.27.1 allows a malicious http server to cause a denial of service (crash due to a NULL pointer dereference) by returning a crafted response that lacks a space character. (CVE-2019-13114)

- In Jp2Image::readMetadata() in jp2image.cpp in Exiv2 0.27.2, an input file can result in an infinite loop and hang, with high CPU consumption. Remote attackers could leverage this vulnerability to cause a denial of service via a crafted file. (CVE-2019-20421)

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