Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.71121
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2012:0305
Summary:Redhat Security Advisory RHSA-2012:0305
Description:The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2012:0305.

The boost packages provide free, peer-reviewed, portable C++ source
libraries with emphasis on libraries which work well with the C++ Standard
Library.

Invalid pointer dereference flaws were found in the way the Boost regular
expression library processed certain, invalid expressions. An attacker able
to make an application using the Boost library process a specially-crafted
regular expression could cause that application to crash or, potentially,
execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the
application. (CVE-2008-0171)

NULL pointer dereference flaws were found in the way the Boost regular
expression library processed certain, invalid expressions. An attacker able
to make an application using the Boost library process a specially-crafted
regular expression could cause that application to crash. (CVE-2008-0172)

Red Hat would like to thank Will Drewry for reporting these issues.

This update also fixes the following bugs:

* Prior to this update, the construction of a regular expression object
could fail when several regular expression objects were created
simultaneously, such as in a multi-threaded program. With this update, the
object variables have been moved from the shared memory to the stack. Now,
the constructing function is thread safe. (BZ#472384)

* Prior to this update, header files in several Boost libraries contained
preprocessor directives that the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) 4.4 could
not handle. This update instead uses equivalent constructs that are
standard C. (BZ#567722)

All users of boost are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
fix these issues.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
