ID CVE-2008-3281
Summary libxml2 2.6.32 and earlier does not properly detect recursion during entity expansion in an attribute value, which allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (memory and CPU consumption) via a crafted XML document.

    description a. Updated ESX Service Console package libxml2 A denial of service flaw was found in the way libxml2 processes certain content. If an application that is linked against libxml2 processes malformed XML content, the XML content might cause the application to stop responding. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2008-3281 to this issue. Additionally the following was also fixed, but was missing in the security advisory. A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way libxml2 handled long XML entity names. If an application linked against libxml2 processed untrusted malformed XML content, it could cause the application to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2008-3529 to this issue. b. Updated ESX Service Console package ucd-snmp A flaw was found in the way ucd-snmp checks an SNMPv3 packet's Keyed-Hash Message Authentication Code. An attacker could use this flaw to spoof an authenticated SNMPv3 packet. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2008-0960 to this issue. c. Updated third-party library libtiff Multiple uses of uninitialized values were discovered in libtiff's Lempel-Ziv-Welch (LZW) compression algorithm decoder. An attacker could create a carefully crafted LZW-encoded TIFF file that would cause an application linked with libtiff to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2008-2327 to this issue.

    description The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200812-06 (libxml2: Multiple vulnerabilities) Multiple vulnerabilities were reported in libxml2: Andreas Solberg reported that libxml2 does not properly detect recursion during entity expansion in an attribute value (CVE-2008-3281). A heap-based buffer overflow has been reported in the xmlParseAttValueComplex() function in parser.c (CVE-2008-3529). Christian Weiske reported that predefined entity definitions in entities are not properly handled (CVE-2008-4409). Drew Yao of Apple Product Security reported an integer overflow in the xmlBufferResize() function that can lead to an infinite loop (CVE-2008-4225). Drew Yao of Apple Product Security reported an integer overflow in the xmlSAX2Characters() function leading to a memory corruption (CVE-2008-4226). Impact : A remote attacker could entice a user or automated system to open a specially crafted XML document with an application using libxml2, possibly resulting in the exeution of arbitrary code or a high CPU and memory consumption. Workaround : There is no known workaround at this time.

    description Secunia reports : Two vulnerabilities have been reported in Libxml2, which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) or potentially compromise an application using the library. 1) A recursion error exists when processing certain XML content. This can be exploited to e.g. exhaust all available memory and CPU resources by tricking an application using Libxml2 into processing specially crafted XML documents. 2) A boundary error in the processing of long XML entity names in parser.c can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow when specially crafted XML content is parsed. Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code.
