Oracle Solaris Third-Party Patch Update : libxml2 (cve_2011_0216_denial_of)

High Nessus Plugin ID 80688

Synopsis

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

Description

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

- Off-by-one error in libxml in Apple Safari before 5.0.6 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow and application crash) via a crafted web site.
(CVE-2011-0216)

- Double free vulnerability in libxml2, as used in Google Chrome before 13.0.782.215, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted XPath expression.
(CVE-2011-2821)

- Double free vulnerability in libxml2, as used in Google Chrome before 14.0.835.163, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via vectors related to XPath handling.
(CVE-2011-2834)

- Off-by-one error in libxml2, as used in Google Chrome before 19.0.1084.46 and other products, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds write) or possibly have unspecified other impact via unknown vectors. (CVE-2011-3102)

- libxml2, as used in Google Chrome before 16.0.912.63, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read) via unspecified vectors.
(CVE-2011-3905)

- Heap-based buffer overflow in libxml2, as used in Google Chrome before 16.0.912.75, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via unknown vectors. (CVE-2011-3919)

- libxml2 before 2.8.0 computes hash values without restricting the ability to trigger hash collisions predictably, which allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (CPU consumption) via crafted XML data. (CVE-2012-0841)

Solution

Upgrade to Solaris 11/11 SRU 10.5.
