Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : libxslt (MDVSA-2012:164)

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in
libxslt :

Unspecified vulnerability in XSLT allows remote attackers to obtain
potentially sensitive information about heap memory addresses via
unknown vectors (CVE-2011-1202).

libxslt 1.1.26 and earlier does not properly manage memory, which
might allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application
crash) via a crafted XSLT expression that is not properly identified
during XPath navigation, related to (1) the
xsltCompileLocationPathPattern function in libxslt/pattern.c and (2)
the xsltGenerateIdFunction function in libxslt/functions.c

libxml2 2.9.0-rc1 and earlier does not properly support a cast of an
unspecified variable during handling of XSL transforms, which allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unknown
other impact via a crafted document, related to the _xmlNs data
structure in include/libxml/tree.h (CVE-2012-2871).

Double free vulnerability in libxslt allows remote attackers to cause
a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via
vectors related to XSL transforms (CVE-2012-2893).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 6.8
CVSS Temporal Score : 5.9
