Description

This update for libplist fixes the following security issues :

  • CVE-2017-5545: The main function in plistutil.c in libimobiledevice libplist allowed attackers to obtain sensitive information from process memory or cause a denial of service (buffer over-read) via Apple Property List data that is too short. (bsc#1021610).

  • CVE-2017-5209: 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. (bsc#1019531)

  • CVE-2017-5836: A type inconsistency in bplist.c was fixed. (bsc#1023807)

  • CVE-2017-5835: A memory allocation error leading to DoS was fixed. (bsc#1023822)

  • CVE-2017-5834: A heap-buffer overflow in parse_dict_node was fixed (bsc#1023848)

  • CVE-2017-7982: Denial of service (heap-based buffer over-read and application crash) via a crafted plist file (bsc#1035312)

  • CVE-2017-6440: A specially crafted plist file could lead to denial of service (bsc#1029631)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
