Description

xslt.c in libxslt before 1.1.25 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a stylesheet that embeds a DTD, which causes a structure to be accessed as a different type. NOTE: this issue is due to an incomplete fix for CVE-2012-2825.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-libxslt
  • suse-upgrade-libxslt-32bit
  • suse-upgrade-libxslt-devel
  • suse-upgrade-libxslt-devel-32bit

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.
