EulerOS 2.0 SP1 : libtiff (EulerOS-SA-2016-1034)

High Nessus Plugin ID 99797


The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.


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

- Multiple flaws have been discovered in libtiff. A remote attacker could exploit these flaws to cause a crash or memory corruption and, possibly, execute arbitrary code by tricking an application linked against libtiff into processing specially crafted files.(CVE-2014-9655, CVE-2015-1547, CVE-2015-8784, CVE-2015-8683, CVE-2015-8665, CVE-2015-8781, CVE-2015-8782, CVE-2015-8783, CVE-2016-3990, CVE-2016-5320)

- Multiple flaws have been discovered in various libtiff tools (bmp2tiff, pal2rgb, thumbnail, tiff2bw, tiff2pdf, tiffcrop, tiffdither, tiffsplit, tiff2rgba). By tricking a user into processing a specially crafted file, a remote attacker could exploit these flaws to cause a crash or memory corruption and, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the libtiff tool.(CVE-2014-8127, CVE-2014-8129, CVE-2014-8130, CVE-2014-9330, CVE-2015-7554, CVE-2015-8668, CVE-2016-3632, CVE-2016-3945, CVE-2016-3991)

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.
