EulerOS 2.0 SP9 : grub2 (EulerOS-SA-2023-1443)

high Nessus Plugin ID 172307

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

According to the versions of the grub2 packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A buffer overflow was found in grub_font_construct_glyph(). A malicious crafted pf2 font can lead to an overflow when calculating the max_glyph_size value, allocating a smaller than needed buffer for the glyph, this further leads to a buffer overflow and a heap based out-of-bounds write. An attacker may use this vulnerability to circumvent the secure boot mechanism. (CVE-2022-2601)

- When rendering certain unicode sequences, grub2's font code doesn't proper validate if the informed glyph's width and height is constrained within bitmap size. As consequence an attacker can craft an input which will lead to a out-of-bounds write into grub2's heap, leading to memory corruption and availability issues. Although complex, arbitrary code execution could not be discarded. (CVE-2022-3775)

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 grub2 packages.
