CVE-2016-0729

Status Candidate

Overview

Multiple buffer overflows in (1) internal/XMLReader.cpp, (2) util/XMLURL.cpp, and (3) util/XMLUri.cpp in the XML Parser library in Apache Xerces-C before 3.1.3 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (segmentation fault or memory corruption) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted document.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2016-0430-01 - Xerces-C is a validating XML parser written in a portable subset of C++. It was discovered that the Xerces-C XML parser did not properly process certain XML input. By providing specially crafted XML data to an application using Xerces-C for XML processing, a remote attacker could exploit this flaw to cause an application crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the application.

Debian Linux Security Advisory 3493-1 - Gustavo Grieco discovered that xerces-c, a validating XML parser library for C++, mishandles certain kinds of malformed input documents, resulting in buffer overflows during processing and error reporting. These flaws could lead to a denial of service in applications using the xerces-c library, or potentially, to the execution of arbitrary code.

Apache Xerces-C XML Parser Buffer Overflow
Posted Feb 25, 2016
Authored by Gustavo Grieco

The Xerces-C XML parser mishandles certain kinds of malformed input documents, resulting in buffer overflows during processing and error reporting. The overflows can manifest as a segmentation fault or as memory corruption during a parse operation. The bugs allow for a denial of service attack in many applications by an unauthenticated attacker, and could conceivably result in remote code execution. Apache Xerces-C XML Parser library versions prior to 3.1.3 are affected.
