Description

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

  • The base64decode function in base64.c in libimobiledevice libplist through 1.12 allows attackers to obtain sensitive information from process memory or cause a denial of service (buffer over-read) via split encoded Apple Property List data.(CVE-2017-5209)

  • The parse_data_node function in bplist.c in libimobiledevice libplist 1.12 allows local users to cause a denial of service (memory allocation error) via a crafted plist file.(CVE-2017-6440)

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.
