EulerOS 2.0 SP3 : libxslt (EulerOS-SA-2019-2032)

high Nessus Plugin ID 129225

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

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

- In numbers.c in libxslt 1.1.33, an xsl:number with certain format strings could lead to a uninitialized read in xsltNumberFormatInsertNumbers. This could allow an attacker to discern whether a byte on the stack contains the characters A, a, I, i, or 0, or any other character.(CVE-2019-13117)

- In numbers.c in libxslt 1.1.33, a type holding grouping characters of an xsl:number instruction was too narrow and an invalid character/length combination could be passed to xsltNumberFormatDecimal, leading to a read of uninitialized stack data.(CVE-2019-13118)

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.
