Ubuntu 12.04 LTS / 14.04 LTS / 14.10 : batik vulnerability (USN-2548-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2015-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2015-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Nicolas Gregoire and Kevin Schaller discovered that Batik would load
XML external entities by default. If a user or automated system were
tricked into opening a specially crafted SVG file, an attacker could
possibly obtain access to arbitrary files or cause resource
consumption.

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 libbatik-java package.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 6.4
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:P)
CVSS Temporal Score : 5.3
(CVSS2#E:F/RL:OF/RC:ND)
