Summary

IBM Cognos Business Intelligence uses Libxml2. Multiple vulnerabilites in Libxml2 have been addressed.

Vulnerability Details

CVEID: CVE-2016-4658**
DESCRIPTION:** The libxml2 library, as used in multiple products, could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by a memory corruption error. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability using a specially crafted XML document to execute arbitrary code on the system or cause a denial of service.
CVSS Base Score: 9.8
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/117175 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H)

CVEID: CVE-2017-9050**
DESCRIPTION:** libxml2 is vulnerable to a heap-based buffer overflow, caused by a buffer over-read flaw in the xmlDictAddString function in dict.c. By sending a specially-crafted request, a local attacker could overflow a buffer and cause the application to crash.
CVSS Base Score: 5.9
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/126277 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:L/A:L)

CVEID: CVE-2017-9049**
DESCRIPTION:** libxml2 is vulnerable to a heap-based buffer overflow, caused by a buffer over-read flaw in the xmlDictComputeFastKey function in dict.c. By sending a specially-crafted request, a local attacker could overflow a buffer and cause the application to crash.
CVSS Base Score: 5.9

CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:L/A:L)

CVEID: CVE-2017-9048**
DESCRIPTION:** libxml2 is vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking of the strlen(buf) size in the xmlSnprintfElementContent function in valid.c. By sending a specially-crafted request, a local attacker could overflow a buffer and cause the application to crash.
CVSS Base Score: 5.9

CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:L/A:L)

CVEID: CVE-2017-8872**
DESCRIPTION:** libxml2 is vulnerable to a buffer overflow, caused by a a buffer-over-read flaw in the htmlParseTryOrFinish function in HTMLparser.c. By sending a specially-crafted request, a local attacker could overflow a buffer and cause a denial of service condition or obtain sensitive information on the system.
CVSS Base Score: 5.9

CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:L/A:L)

CVEID: CVE-2017-7375**
DESCRIPTION:** libxml2 could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by missing validation for external entities in xmlParsePEReference. By sending specially-crafted XML data, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to obtain sensitive information or cause a denial of service.
CVSS Base Score: 6.5
