Description

According to the versions of the ncurses packages installed, the EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

  • There is an illegal address access in the _nc_safe_strcat function in strings.c in ncurses 6.0 that will lead to a remote denial of service attack.(CVE-2017-13734)

  • There is an illegal address access in the fmt_entry function in progs/dump_entry.c in ncurses 6.0 that might lead to a remote denial of service attack.(CVE-2017-13733)

  • There is an illegal address access in the function dump_uses() in progs/dump_entry.c in ncurses 6.0 that might lead to a remote denial of service attack.(CVE-2017-13732)

  • There is an illegal address access in the function postprocess_termcap() in parse_entry.c in ncurses 6.0 that will lead to a remote denial of service attack.(CVE-2017-13731)

  • There is an illegal address access in the function _nc_read_entry_source() in progs/tic.c in ncurses 6.0 that might lead to a remote denial of service attack.(CVE-2017-13730)

  • There is an illegal address access in the _nc_save_str function in alloc_entry.c in ncurses 6.0. It will lead to a remote denial of service attack.(CVE-2017-13729)

  • There is an infinite loop in the next_char function in comp_scan.c in ncurses 6.0, related to libtic. A crafted input will lead to a remote denial of service attack.(CVE-2017-13728)

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.
