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.

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 :

- 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)

- 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)

- numbers.c in libxslt before 1.1.29, as used in Google Chrome before 51.0.2704.63, mishandles the i format token for xsl:number data, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (integer overflow or resource consumption) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted document.(CVE-2016-1684)

- numbers.c in libxslt before 1.1.29, as used in Google Chrome before 51.0.2704.63, mishandles namespace nodes, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds heap memory access) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted document.(CVE-2016-1683)

- The xsltStylePreCompute function in preproc.c in libxslt 1.1.28 does not check if the parent node is an element, which allows attackers to cause a denial of service via a crafted XML file, related to a 'type confusion' issue.(CVE-2015-7995)

- In xsltCopyText in transform.c in libxslt 1.1.33, a pointer variable isn't reset under certain circumstances. If the relevant memory area happened to be freed and reused in a certain way, a bounds check could fail and memory outside a buffer could be written to, or uninitialized data could be disclosed.(CVE-2019-18197)

- Type confusion in xsltNumberFormatGetMultipleLevel prior to libxslt 1.1.33 could allow attackers to potentially exploit heap corruption via crafted XML data.(CVE-2019-5815)

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.
