Vigil@nce: libxslt, double memory free via xmlFreeNodeList

October 2012 by Vigil@nce

This bulletin was written by Vigil@nce : http://vigilance.fr/offer

SYNTHESIS OF THE VULNERABILITY

An attacker can use malicious XSLT data, in order to stop applications linked to libxslt, and possibly to execute code.

- Impacted products: Debian, Fedora, MES, Mandriva Linux, openSUSE,
- RHEL, Unix (platform)
- Severity: 2/4
- Creation date: 08/10/2012

DESCRIPTION OF THE VULNERABILITY

The libxslt library processes XSLT transformations to be applied on an XML document.

The xsltAttrTemplateProcess() and xsltAttrListTemplateProcess() functions of the libxslt/templates.c file can be used to process attributes on a template. However, if the attribute value is member of a dictionary, this value is freed twice by the xmlFreeNodeList() function.

An attacker can therefore use malicious XSLT data, in order to stop applications linked to libxslt, and possibly to execute code.
