EulerOS Virtualization 3.0.1.0 : libxslt (EulerOS-SA-2019-1606)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 125558

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS Virtualization host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

According to the versions of the libxslt packages installed, the EulerOS Virtualization installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- libxslt through 1.1.33 allows bypass of a protection mechanism because callers of xsltCheckRead and xsltCheckWrite permit access even upon receiving a -1 error code. xsltCheckRead can return -1 for a crafted URL that is not actually invalid and is subsequently loaded.(CVE-2019-11068)

- In libxslt 1.1.29 and earlier, the EXSLT math.random function was not initialized with a random seed during startup, which could cause usage of this function to produce predictable outputs.(CVE-2015-9019)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the EulerOS security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected libxslt packages.
