Huawei EulerOS: Security Advisory for icu (EulerOS-SA-2019-1969)

Published: 2020-01-23 12:28:48
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

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

Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the Huawei EulerOS 'icu' Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the EulerOS-SA-2019-1969 advisory.

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

Technical Details:
Unspecified vulnerability in the Java SE and Java SE Embedded components in Oracle Java SE 6u105, 7u91, and 8u66 and Java SE Embedded 8u65 allows remote attackers to affect confidentiality, integrity, and availability via unknown vectors related to 2D.(CVE-2016-0494) Unspecified vulnerability in Oracle Java SE 6u101, 7u85, and 8u60, and Java SE Embedded 8u51, allows remote attackers to affect confidentiality, integrity, and availability via unknown vectors related to 2D.(CVE-2015-4844) Stack-based buffer overflow in the Locale class in common/locid.cpp in International Components for Unicode (ICU) through 57.1 for C/C++ allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a long locale string.(CVE-2016-7415) The uloc_acceptLanguageFromHTTP function in common/uloc.cpp in International Components for Unicode (ICU) through 57.1 for C/C++ does not ensure that there is a '\0' character at the end of a certain temporary array, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a call with a long httpAcceptLanguage argument.(CVE-2016-6293) The Regular Expressions Linux Distribution Package in International Components for Unicode (ICU) for C/C++ before 2014-12-03, as used in Google Chrome before 40.0.2214.91, calculates certain values without ensuring that they can be represented in a 24-bit field, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted string, a related issue to CVE-2014-7923.(CVE-2014-9654) International Components for Unicode (ICU) for C/C++ before 2017-02-13 has an out-of-bounds write caused by a heap-based buffer overflow related to the utf8TextAccess function in common/utext.cpp and the utext_moveIndex32* function.(CVE-2017-7868) A vulnerability was found in the International Components for Unicode (ICU). Specially crafted invalid utf-8 text, when parsed or manipulated using particular functions in libicu, could cause out-of-bounds heap reads and writes potentially leading to a crash, memory disclosure, or possibly code execution.(CVE-2017-7867)

Affected Versions:
'icu' Linux Distribution Package(s) on Huawei EulerOS V2.0SP5.

Recommendations:
Please install the updated Linux Distribution Package(s).

Solution Type:
Vendor Patch

Detection Type:
Linux Distribution Package

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".
