Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Update for raptor RHSA-2012:0410-01
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'raptor'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
The remote host is missing an update for the 'raptor'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
Raptor provides parsers for Resource Description Framework (RDF) files.

An XML External Entity expansion flaw was found in the way Raptor processed
RDF files. If an application linked against Raptor were to open a
specially-crafted RDF file, it could possibly allow a remote attacker to
obtain a copy of an arbitrary local file that the user running the
application had access to. A bug in the way Raptor handled external
entities could cause that application to crash or, possibly, execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application.

Red Hat would like to thank Timothy D. Morgan of VSR for reporting this

All Raptor users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to correct this issue. All running applications
linked against Raptor must be restarted for this update to take effect.

Affected Software/OS:
raptor on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Please Install the Updated Packages.
