Oracle Solaris Third-Party Patch Update : libxslt (multiple_vulnerabilities_in_libxslt)

This script is Copyright (C) 2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Solaris system is missing a security patch for third-party
software.

Description :

The remote Solaris system is missing necessary patches to address
security updates :

- The xsltGenerateIdFunction function in functions.c in
libxslt 1.1.26 and earlier, as used in Google Chrome
before 10.0.648.127 and other products, allows remote
attackers to obtain potentially sensitive information
about heap memory addresses via an XML document
containing a call to the XSLT generate-id XPath
function. (CVE-2011-1202)

- The XSL implementation in Google Chrome before
20.0.1132.43 allows remote attackers to cause a denial
of service (incorrect read operation) via unspecified
vectors. (CVE-2012-2825)

- libxslt 1.1.26 and earlier, as used in Google Chrome
before 21.0.1180.89, 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. (CVE-2012-2870)

- libxml2 2.9.0-rc1 and earlier, as used in Google Chrome
before 21.0.1180.89, 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, as used in Google
Chrome before 22.0.1229.79, allows remote attackers to
cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified
other impact via vectors related to XSL transforms.
(CVE-2012-2893)
