 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2012:122

 Package : icedtea-web
 Date    : August 2, 2012
 Affected: 2011., Enterprise Server 5.0

 Problem Description:

 Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in
 An uninitialized pointer use flaw was found in IcedTea-Web web
 browser plugin.  A malicious web page could use this flaw make
 IcedTea-Web browser plugin pass invalid pointer to a web browser.
 Depending on the browser used, it may cause the browser to crash or
 possibly execute arbitrary code (CVE-2012-3422).
 It was discovered that the IcedTea-Web web browser plugin incorrectly
 assumed that all strings provided by browser are NUL terminated,
 which is not guaranteed by the NPAPI (Netscape Plugin Application
 Programming Interface).  When used in a browser that does not NUL
 terminate NPVariant NPStrings, this could lead to buffer over-read
 or over-write, resulting in possible information leak, crash, or code
 execution (CVE-2012-3423).
 The updated packages have been upgraded to the 1.1.6 version which
 is not affected by these issues.
