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

High Nessus Plugin ID 102967

New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 6.7

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.
