Description Bharti Kundal 2016-12-22 20:24:59 UTC
It was found that Red Hat JBoss Core Services incorrectly fixed CVE-2016-3627 in Apache HTTP 2.4.23 (erratum RHSA-2016:2957), leaving libxml2 vulnerable to a Denial of Service attack via stack consumption.

Comment 2 Salvatore Bonaccorso 2016-12-22 20:45:27 UTC
Are there any details available for this? Upsteam bug, commit reference?

This and the other two should be for a Red Hat specific security regressions, effectively duplicates of other public CVEs.  I'm going to ask Bharti to fix these bugs up properly.

Comment 7 Marcus Meissner 2017-02-20 10:14:34 UTC
dup of CVE-2016-3627 I would say

Comment 8 Tomas Hoger 2017-02-23 17:23:11 UTC
This CVE id is for the same issue as CVE-2016-3627 (bug 1319829).  This additional CVE was assigned because the original issue was listed as fixed in RHSA-2016:2957 for the Red Hat JBoss Core Services:

https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2016-2957.html

However, that erratum actually failed to include the fix for the issue.

Therefore, this new CVE is specific to the Red Hat JBoss Core Services product and is better described as: missing/incorrect fix for CVE-2016-3627 in the Red Hat JBoss Core Services.

Comment 10 Timothy Walsh 2018-09-05 04:14:58 UTC
JBCS 2.4.29 RHSA-2018:2486 includes rebased libxml2 to 2.9.7 which addresses this CVE and CVE-2016-9597.
