SUSE SLED11 / SLES11 Security Update : mono-core (SUSE-SU-2016:0257-1)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 88454


The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.


mono-core was updated to fix the following vulnerabilities :

- CVE-2009-0689: Remote attackers could cause a denial of service and possibly arbitrary code execution through the string-to-double parser implementation (bsc#958097)

- CVE-2012-3543: Remote attackers could cause a denial of service through increased CPU consumption due to lack of protection against predictable hash collisions when processing form parameters (bsc#739119)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
