Summary

The following vulnerabilites in Libxml2 have been addressed by IBM Flex System switch firmware products.

Vulnerability Details

CVEID:CVE-2021-3517
**DESCRIPTION:**GNOME libxml2 is vulnerable to a heap-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by xmlEncodeEntitiesInternal() in entities.c. By sending a specially crafted file, a remote attacker could trigger an out-of-bounds read and execute arbitrary code on the system or cause a denial of service.
CVSS Base score: 8.6
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/202526 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:L/A:H)

CVEID:CVE-2021-3537
**DESCRIPTION:**GNOME libxml2 is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by a NULL pointer dereference flaw when parsing XML mixed content in recovery mode and post-validated. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause the application to crash.
CVSS Base score: 7.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/203084 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:H)
