openSUSE Security Update : icu (openSUSE-2017-1011)

High Nessus Plugin ID 102967

Synopsis

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description

icu was updated to fix two security issues.

These security issues were fixed :

- CVE-2014-8147: The resolveImplicitLevels function in common/ubidi.c in the Unicode Bidirectional Algorithm implementation in ICU4C in International Components for Unicode (ICU) used an integer data type that is inconsistent with a header file, which allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (incorrect malloc followed by invalid free) or possibly execute arbitrary code via crafted text (bsc#929629).

- CVE-2014-8146: The resolveImplicitLevels function in common/ubidi.c in the Unicode Bidirectional Algorithm implementation in ICU4C in International Components for Unicode (ICU) did not properly track directionally isolated pieces of text, which allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow) or possibly execute arbitrary code via crafted text (bsc#929629). This update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-12:Update update project.

Solution

Update the affected icu packages.
