Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:018: libxml2

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the libxml2 package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:018 (libxml2).


A flaw in libxml2 versions prior to 2.6.6 was found by Yuuichi Teranishi. When
fetching a remote source via FTP or HTTP, libxml2 uses special parsing routines
that can overflow a buffer if passed a very long URL. In the event that the
attacker can find a program that uses libxml2 which parses remote resources and
permits them to influence the URL, this flaw could be used to execute arbitrary
code.
The updated packages provide a backported fix to correct the problem.
