Security Bulletin

This security bulletin contains information about 9 vulnerabilities.

1) Input validation error

EUVDB-ID: #VU33820

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2014-0191

CWE-ID: CWE-20 - Improper Input Validation

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote non-authenticated attacker to perform service disruption.

The xmlParserHandlePEReference function in parser.c in libxml2 before 2.9.2, as used in Web Listener in Oracle HTTP Server in Oracle Fusion Middleware 11.1.1.7.0, 12.1.2.0, and 12.1.3.0 and other products, loads external parameter entities regardless of whether entity substitution or validation is enabled, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (resource consumption) via a crafted XML document.

Mitigation

Update the affected package libxml2 to the latest version.
