Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2008-231

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2008-231
Posted Nov 19, 2008
Authored by Mandriva | Site mandriva.com

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2008-231 - Drew Yaro of the Apple Product Security Team found two flaws in libxml2. The first is a denial of service flaw in libxml2's XML parser. If an application linked against libxml2 were to process certain malformed XML content, it cause the application to enter an infinite loop. The second is an integer overflow that caused a heap-based buffer overflow in libxml2's XML parser. If an application linked against libxml2 were to process certain malformed XML content, it could cause the application to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code. The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Package : libxml2

Affected: 2008.0, 2008.1, 2009.0, Corporate 3.0, Corporate 4.0

Problem Description:

Drew Yaro of the Apple Product Security Team found two flaws in
libxml2. The first is a denial of service flaw in libxml2's XML
parser. If an application linked against libxml2 were to process
certain malformed XML content, it cause the application to enter an
infinite loop (CVE-2008-4225).

The second is an integer overflow that caused a heap-based buffer
overflow in libxml2's XML parser. If an application linked against
libxml2 were to process certain malformed XML content, it could
cause the application to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code
(CVE-2008-4226).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
