Oracle Solaris Third-Party Patch Update : libxml2 (cve_2010_4008_denial_of)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 80687


The remote Solaris system is missing a security patch for third-party software.


The remote Solaris system is missing necessary patches to address security updates :

- libxml2 before 2.7.8, as used in Google Chrome before 7.0.517.44, Apple Safari 5.0.2 and earlier, and other products, reads from invalid memory locations during processing of malformed XPath expressions, which allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted XML document.


Upgrade to Solaris 11/11 SRU 10.5.
