-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 ===================================================================== Red Hat Security Advisory Synopsis: Moderate: libxml2 security update Advisory ID: RHSA-2014:0513-01 Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2014-0513.html Issue date: 2014-05-19 CVE Names: CVE-2013-2877 CVE-2014-0191 ===================================================================== 1. Summary: Updated libxml2 packages that fix two security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having Moderate 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. 2. Relevant releases/architectures: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6) - i386, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop Optional (v. 6) - i386, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node (v. 6) - x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node Optional (v. 6) - x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6) - i386, ppc64, s390x, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server Optional (v. 6) - i386, ppc64, s390x, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6) - i386, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation Optional (v. 6) - i386, x86_64 3. Description: The libxml2 library is a development toolbox providing the implementation of various XML standards. It was discovered that libxml2 loaded external parameter entities even when entity substitution was disabled. A remote attacker able to provide a specially crafted XML file to an application linked against libxml2 could use this flaw to conduct XML External Entity (XXE) attacks, possibly resulting in a denial of service or an information leak on the system. (CVE-2014-0191) An out-of-bounds read flaw was found in the way libxml2 detected the end of an XML file. A remote attacker could provide a specially crafted XML file that, when processed by an application linked against libxml2, could cause the application to crash. (CVE-2013-2877) The CVE-2014-0191 issue was discovered by Daniel P. Berrange of Red Hat. All libxml2 users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. The desktop must be restarted (log out, then log back in) for this update to take effect. 4. Solution: Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata relevant to your system have been applied. This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at https://access.redhat.com/site/articles/11258 5. Bugs fixed (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/): 983204 - CVE-2013-2877 libxml2: Out-of-bounds read via a document that ends abruptly 1090976 - CVE-2014-0191 libxml2: external parameter entity loaded when entity substitution is disabled 6.
