  • NASL family Red Hat Local Security Checks
    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2012-1265.NASL
    description Updated libxslt packages that fix several security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having important security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section. libxslt is a library for transforming XML files into other textual formats (including HTML, plain text, and other XML representations of the underlying data) using the standard XSLT stylesheet transformation mechanism. A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way libxslt applied templates to nodes selected by certain namespaces. An attacker could use this flaw to create a malicious XSL file that, when used by an application linked against libxslt to perform an XSL transformation, could cause the application to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application. (CVE-2012-2871) Several denial of service flaws were found in libxslt. An attacker could use these flaws to create a malicious XSL file that, when used by an application linked against libxslt to perform an XSL transformation, could cause the application to crash. (CVE-2012-2825, CVE-2012-2870, CVE-2011-3970) An information leak could occur if an application using libxslt processed an untrusted XPath expression, or used a malicious XSL file to perform an XSL transformation. If combined with other flaws, this leak could possibly help an attacker bypass intended memory corruption protections. (CVE-2011-1202) All libxslt users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to resolve these issues. All running applications linked against libxslt must be restarted for this update to take effect.

This issue only affected Ubuntu 8.04 LTS, Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and Ubuntu 11.04. (CVE-2011-1202) It was discovered that libxslt incorrectly parsed certain patterns. If a user or automated system were tricked into processing a specially crafted XSLT document, a remote attacker could cause libxslt to crash, causing a denial of service. (CVE-2011-3970) Nicholas Gregoire discovered that libxslt incorrectly handled unexpected DTD nodes. If a user or automated system were tricked into processing a specially crafted XSLT document, a remote attacker could cause libxslt to crash, causing a denial of service. (CVE-2012-2825) Nicholas Gregoire discovered that libxslt incorrectly managed memory.

(CVE-2012-2825) - libxslt 1.1.26 and earlier, as used in Google Chrome before 21.0.1180.89, does not properly manage memory, which might allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted XSLT expression that is not properly identified during XPath navigation, related to (1) the xsltCompileLocationPathPattern function in libxslt/pattern.c and (2) the xsltGenerateIdFunction function in libxslt/functions.c.

Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section. libxslt is a library for transforming XML files into other textual formats (including HTML, plain text, and other XML representations of the underlying data) using the standard XSLT stylesheet transformation mechanism. A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way libxslt applied templates to nodes selected by certain namespaces. An attacker could use this flaw to create a malicious XSL file that, when used by an application linked against libxslt to perform an XSL transformation, could cause the application to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application. (CVE-2012-2871) Several denial of service flaws were found in libxslt. An attacker could use these flaws to create a malicious XSL file that, when used by an application linked against libxslt to perform an XSL transformation, could cause the application to crash. (CVE-2012-2825, CVE-2012-2870, CVE-2011-3970) An information leak could occur if an application using libxslt processed an untrusted XPath expression, or used a malicious XSL file to perform an XSL transformation. If combined with other flaws, this leak could possibly help an attacker bypass intended memory corruption protections. (CVE-2011-1202) All libxslt users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to resolve these issues. All running applications linked against libxslt must be restarted for this update to take effect.

    description A vulnerability has been discovered and corrected in libxslt : The XSL implementation in libxslt allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (incorrect read operation) via unspecified vectors (CVE-2012-2825). libxslt 1.1.26 and earlier does not properly manage memory, which might allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted XSLT expression that is not properly identified during XPath navigation, related to (1) the xsltCompileLocationPathPattern function in libxslt/pattern.c and (2) the xsltGenerateIdFunction function in libxslt/functions.c (CVE-2012-2870). libxml2 2.9.0-rc1 and earlier does not properly support a cast of an unspecified variable during handling of XSL transforms, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unknown other impact via a crafted document, related to the _xmlNs data structure in include/libxml/tree.h (CVE-2012-2871). Double free vulnerability in libxslt allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via vectors related to XSL transforms (CVE-2012-2893). The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
