The remote Fedora 32 host has a package installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the FEDORA-2021-6e581c051a advisory.

  • The iconv program in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) 2.31 and earlier, when invoked with multiple suffixes in the destination encoding (TRANSLATE or IGNORE) along with the -c option, enters an infinite loop when processing invalid multi-byte input sequences, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2016-10228)

  • The iconv feature in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) through 2.32, when processing invalid multi- byte input sequences in the EUC-KR encoding, may have a buffer over-read. (CVE-2019-25013)

  • An exploitable signed comparison vulnerability exists in the ARMv7 memcpy() implementation of GNU glibc 2.30.9000. Calling memcpy() (on ARMv7 targets that utilize the GNU glibc implementation) with a negative value for the ‘num’ parameter results in a signed comparison vulnerability. If an attacker underflows the ‘num’ parameter to memcpy(), this vulnerability could lead to undefined behavior such as writing to out- of-bounds memory and potentially remote code execution. Furthermore, this memcpy() implementation allows for program execution to continue in scenarios where a segmentation fault or crash should have occurred.
    The dangers occur in that subsequent execution and iterations of this code will be executed with this corrupted data. (CVE-2020-6096)

  • The iconv function in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) 2.30 to 2.32, when converting UCS4 text containing an irreversible character, fails an assertion in the code path and aborts the program, potentially resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2020-29562)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application’s self-reported version number.
