Oracle Solaris Third-Party Patch Update : libxml2 (cve_2013_0338_denial_of)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 80690

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 :

- libxml2 2.9.0 and earlier allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (CPU and memory consumption) via an XML file containing an entity declaration with long replacement text and many references to this entity, aka 'internal entity expansion' with linear complexity. (CVE-2013-0338)

Solution

Upgrade to Solaris 11.1.7.5.0.
