Debian DSA-5232-1 : tinygltf - security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 165291


The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


The remote Debian 11 host has packages installed that are affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the dsa-5232 advisory.

- The tinygltf library uses the C library function wordexp() to perform file path expansion on untrusted paths that are provided from the input file. This function allows for command injection by using backticks. An attacker could craft an untrusted path input that would result in a path expansion. We recommend upgrading to 2.6.0 or past commit 52ff00a38447f06a17eab1caa2cf0730a119c751 (CVE-2022-3008)

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


Upgrade the tinygltf packages.

For the stable distribution (bullseye), this problem has been fixed in version 2.5.0+dfsg-3+deb11u1.
