Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.51795
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu 4.10 USN-89-1 (libxml)
Summary:Ubuntu 4.10 USN-89-1 (libxml)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to libxml
announced via advisory USN-89-1.

Several buffer overflows have been discovered in libxml's FTP
connection and DNS resolution functions. Supplying very long FTP URLs
or IP addresses might result in execution of arbitrary code with the
privileges of the process using libxml.

This does not affect the core XML parsing code, which is what the
majority of programs use this library for.

Note: The same vulnerability was already fixed for libxml2 in
USN-10-1.

The following packages are affected: libxml1

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 1:1.8.17-8ubuntu0.1. In general, a standard system upgrade is
sufficient to effect the necessary changes.
