Red Hat Security Advisory Synopsis: Moderate: 4Suite security update Advisory ID: RHSA-2009:1572-02 Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2009-1572.html Issue date: 2009-11-10 CVE Names: CVE-2009-3720 =====================================================================
  1. Summary:

An updated 4Suite package that fixes one security issue is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Desktop version 3 - i386, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 3 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop version 4 - i386, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Description:

The 4Suite package contains XML-related tools and libraries for Python, including 4DOM, 4XSLT, 4XPath, 4RDF, and 4XPointer.

A buffer over-read flaw was found in the way 4Suite's XML parser handles malformed UTF-8 sequences when processing XML files. A specially-crafted XML file could cause applications using the 4Suite library to crash while parsing the file. (CVE-2009-3720)

Note: In Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, this flaw only affects a non-default configuration of the 4Suite package: configurations where the beta version of the cDomlette module is enabled.

All 4Suite users should upgrade to this updated package, which contains a backported patch to correct this issue. After installing the updated package, applications using the 4Suite XML-related tools and libraries must be restarted for the update to take effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released errata relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via Red Hat Network. Details on how to use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/docs/DOC-11259

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

531697 - CVE-2009-3720 expat: buffer over-read and crash on XML with malformed UTF-8 sequences
