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.

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-673-1 - Drew Yao discovered that libxml2 did not correctly handle certain corrupt XML documents. If a user or automated system were tricked into processing a malicious XML document, a remote attacker could cause applications linked against libxml2 to enter an infinite loop, leading to a denial of service. Drew Yao discovered that libxml2 did not correctly handle large memory allocations. If a user or automated system were tricked into processing a very large XML document, a remote attacker could cause applications linked against libxml2 to crash, leading to a denial of service.
