Published: 2018-03-28 22:00:00
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:
AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P

Solution Type:
Vendor Patch

Detection Type:
Linux Distribution Package

Affected Versions:
graphicsmagick on Debian Linux

Recommendations:

Summary:
Various security issues were discovered in Graphicsmagick, a collection of image processing tools. CVE-2017-18219 An allocation failure vulnerability was found in the function ReadOnePNGImage in coders/png.c, which allows attackers to cause a denial of service via a crafted file that triggers an attempt at a large png_pixels array allocation. CVE-2017-18220 The ReadOneJNGImage and ReadJNGImage functions in coders/png.c allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted file, a related issue to CVE-2017-11403. CVE-2017-18229 An allocation failure vulnerability was found in the function ReadTIFFImage in coders/tiff.c, which allows attackers to cause a denial of service via a crafted file, because file size is not properly used to restrict scanline, strip, and tile allocations. CVE-2017-18230 A NULL pointer dereference vulnerability was found in the function ReadCINEONImage in coders/cineon.c, which allows attackers to cause a denial of service via a crafted file. CVE-2017-18231 A NULL pointer dereference vulnerability was found in the function ReadEnhMetaFile in coders/emf.c, which allows attackers to cause a denial of service via a crafted file. CVE-2018-9018 There is a divide-by-zero error in the ReadMNGImage function of coders/png.c. Remote attackers could leverage this vulnerability to cause a crash and denial of service via a crafted mng file.

Detection Method:
This check tests the installed software version using the apt Linux Distribution Package manager.

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
