Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.870688
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Update for xerces-j2 RHSA-2011:0858-01
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'xerces-j2'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
Description:Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'xerces-j2'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
The xerces-j2 packages provide the Apache Xerces2 Java Parser, a
high-performance XML parser. A Document Type Definition (DTD) defines the
legal syntax (and also which elements can be used) for certain types of
files, such as XML files.

A flaw was found in the way the Apache Xerces2 Java Parser processed the
SYSTEM identifier in DTDs. A remote attacker could provide a
specially-crafted XML file, which once parsed by an application using the
Apache Xerces2 Java Parser, would lead to a denial of service (application
hang due to excessive CPU use). (CVE-2009-2625)

Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported
patch to correct this issue. Applications using the Apache Xerces2 Java
Parser must be restarted for this update to take effect.

Affected Software/OS:
xerces-j2 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Solution:
Please Install the Updated Packages.
