EulerOS 2.0 SP1 : gd (EulerOS-SA-2017-1045)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 99890

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

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

- Heap-based buffer overflow in the horizontalDifference8 function in tif_pixarlog.c in LibTIFF 4.0.6 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) or execute arbitrary code via a crafted TIFF image to tiffcp.(CVE-2016-8670)

- The gdImageCreate function in the GD Graphics Library (aka libgd) before 2.2.4 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system hang) via an oversized image.(CVE-2016-9317)

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 gd packages.
