Description

Multiple use-after-free vulnerabilities in libxml2 2.9.0 and possibly other versions might allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via vectors related to the (1) htmlParseChunk and (2) xmldecl_done functions, as demonstrated by a buffer overflow in the xmlBufGetInputBase function.

Solution(s)

  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-app-emulation-emul-linux-x86-baselibs
  • gentoo-linux-upgrade-dev-libs-libxml2

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
