medium Nessus Plugin ID 182455

Synopsis

The remote Amazon Linux 2023 host is missing a security update.

Description

It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the ALAS2023-2023-364 advisory.

- LibTIFF 4.4.0 has an out-of-bounds write in extractContigSamplesShifted24bits in tools/tiffcrop.c:3604, allowing attackers to cause a denial-of-service via a crafted tiff file. For users that compile libtiff from sources, the fix is available with commit cfbb883b. (CVE-2022-3598)

- processCropSelections in tools/tiffcrop.c in LibTIFF through 4.5.0 has a heap-based buffer overflow (e.g., WRITE of size 307203) via a crafted TIFF image. (CVE-2022-48281)

- A vulnerability was found in the libtiff library. This security flaw causes a heap buffer overflow in extractContigSamples32bits, tiffcrop.c. (CVE-2023-30775)

- LibTIFF 4.4.0 has an out-of-bounds write in extractContigSamplesShifted24bits in tools/tiffcrop.c:3604, allowing attackers to cause a denial-of-service via a crafted tiff file. For users that compile libtiff from sources, the fix is available with commit cfbb883b. (CVE-2022-3598) (CVE-2023-40745, CVE-2023-41175)

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