openSUSE Security Update : lhasa (openSUSE-2016-455)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 90524


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


This update for lhasa to 0.3.1 fixes the following issues :

These security issues were fixed :

- CVE-2016-2347: Integer underflow vulnerability in the code for doing LZH level 3 header decodes (boo#973790)[

These non-security issues were fixed :

- PMarc -pm1- archives that contain truncated compressed data (the decompressed length is longer than what can be read from the compressed data) now decompress as intended. Certain archives in the wild make the assumption that this can be done.

- LArc -lz5- archives that make use of the initial history buffer now decompress correctly.

- The tests no longer use predictable temporary paths.


Update the affected lhasa packages.
