EulerOS 2.0 SP2 : openjpeg (EulerOS-SA-2017-1060)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 99905


The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.


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

- Multiple integer overflow flaws, leading to heap-based buffer overflows, were found in OpenJPEG. A specially crafted JPEG2000 image could cause an application using OpenJPEG to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-5139, CVE-2016-5158, CVE-2016-5159, CVE-2016-7163)

- An out-of-bounds read vulnerability was found in OpenJPEG, in the j2k_to_image tool. Converting a specially crafted JPEG2000 file to another format could cause the application to crash or, potentially, disclose some data from the heap. (CVE-2016-9573)

- A heap-based buffer overflow vulnerability was found in OpenJPEG. A specially crafted JPEG2000 image, when read by an application using OpenJPEG, could cause the application to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-9675)

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.
