Synopsis

The remote EulerOS Virtualization host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

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

- xmltok_impl.c in Expat (aka libexpat) before 2.4.5 lacks certain validation of encoding, such as checks for whether a UTF-8 character is valid in a certain context. (CVE-2022-25235)

- xmlparse.c in Expat (aka libexpat) before 2.4.5 allows attackers to insert namespace-separator characters into namespace URIs. (CVE-2022-25236)

- In Expat (aka libexpat) before 2.4.5, an attacker can trigger stack exhaustion in build_model via a large nesting depth in the DTD element. (CVE-2022-25313)

- In Expat (aka libexpat) before 2.4.5, there is an integer overflow in copyString. (CVE-2022-25314)
