high Nessus Plugin ID 102967
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

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.
