Ubuntu 10.04 LTS / 11.04 / 11.10 / 12.04 LTS : raptor vulnerability (USN-1480-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2012-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2012-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

Timothy D. Morgan discovered that Raptor would unconditionally load
XML external entities. If a user were tricked into opening a specially
crafted document in an application linked against Raptor, an attacker
could possibly obtain access to arbitrary files on the user's system
or potentially execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user
invoking the program.

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

Solution :

Update the affected libraptor1 package.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 4.3
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N)
CVSS Temporal Score : 3.7
