Published: 2020-01-23 11:44:37
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

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

Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the Huawei EulerOS 'file' Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the EulerOS-SA-2019-1424 advisory.

Detection Method:
Checks if a vulnerable Linux Distribution Package version is present on the target host.

Technical Details:
A denial of service flaw was found in the File Information (fileinfo) extension rules for detecting AWK files. A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause a PHP application using fileinfo to consume an excessive amount of CPU.(CVE-2013-7345) A denial of service flaw was found in the way the File Information (fileinfo) extension parsed certain Composite Document Format (CDF) files. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash a PHP application using fileinfo via a specially crafted CDF file.(CVE-2014-3479) An ouf-of-bounds read flaw was found in the way the file utility processed certain Pascal strings. A remote attacker could cause an application using the file utility (for example, PHP using the fileinfo module) to crash if it was used to identify the type of the attacker-supplied file.(CVE-2014-9652) A denial of service flaw was found in the way the File Information (fileinfo) extension parsed certain Composite Document Format (CDF) files. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash a PHP application using fileinfo via a specially crafted CDF file.(CVE-2014-0207) A denial of service flaw was found in the way the File Information (fileinfo) extension parsed certain Composite Document Format (CDF) files. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash a PHP application using fileinfo via a specially crafted CDF file.(CVE-2014-3480) It was found that the fix for CVE-2012-1571 was incomplete, the File Information (fileinfo) extension did not correctly parse certain Composite Document Format (CDF) files. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash a PHP application using fileinfo via a specially crafted CDF file.(CVE-2014-3587) A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way the File Information (fileinfo) extension processed certain Pascal strings. A remote attacker able to make a PHP application using fileinfo convert a specially crafted Pascal string provided by an image file could cause that application to crash.(CVE-2014-3478) Multiple flaws were found in the File Information (fileinfo) extension regular expression rules for detecting various files. A remote attacker could use either of these flaws to cause a PHP application using fileinfo to consume an excessive amount of CPU.(CVE-2014-3538) A denial of service flaw was found in the way the File Information (fileinfo) extension parsed certain Composite Document Format (CDF) files. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash a PHP application using fileinfo via a specially crafted CDF file.(CVE-2014-3487) A denial of service flaw was found in the way the File Information (fileinfo) extension handled search r ...

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".
