Debian DSA-5160-1 : ntfs-3g - security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 162126

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing one or more security-related updates.

Description

The remote Debian 10 / 11 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the dsa-5160 advisory.

- ntfsck in NTFS-3G through 2021.8.22 has a heap-based buffer overflow involving buffer+512*3-2. NOTE: the upstream position is that ntfsck is deprecated; however, it is shipped by some Linux distributions.
(CVE-2021-46790)

- An invalid return code in fuse_kern_mount enables intercepting of libfuse-lite protocol traffic between NTFS-3G and the kernel in NTFS-3G through 2021.8.22 when using libfuse-lite. (CVE-2022-30783)

- A crafted NTFS image can cause heap exhaustion in ntfs_get_attribute_value in NTFS-3G through 2021.8.22.
(CVE-2022-30784)

- A file handle created in fuse_lib_opendir, and later used in fuse_lib_readdir, enables arbitrary memory read and write operations in NTFS-3G through 2021.8.22 when using libfuse-lite. (CVE-2022-30785)

- A crafted NTFS image can cause a heap-based buffer overflow in ntfs_names_full_collate in NTFS-3G through 2021.8.22. (CVE-2022-30786)

- An integer underflow in fuse_lib_readdir enables arbitrary memory read operations in NTFS-3G through 2021.8.22 when using libfuse-lite. (CVE-2022-30787)

- A crafted NTFS image can cause a heap-based buffer overflow in ntfs_mft_rec_alloc in NTFS-3G through 2021.8.22. (CVE-2022-30788)

- A crafted NTFS image can cause a heap-based buffer overflow in ntfs_check_log_client_array in NTFS-3G through 2021.8.22. (CVE-2022-30789)

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

Solution

Upgrade the ntfs-3g packages.

For the stable distribution (bullseye), these problems have been fixed in version 1
