Gmane
From: Pat Riehecky <riehecky-13hema8v3vg <at> public.gmane.org>
Subject: Security ERRATA Moderate: libxml2 on SL5.x, SL6.x i386/x86_64
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.scientific.errata
Date: Thursday 28th February 2013 22:21:07 UTC (over 3 years ago)
Synopsis:          Moderate: libxml2 security update
Issue Date:        2013-02-28
CVE Numbers:       CVE-2013-0338
--

A denial of service flaw was found in the way libxml2 performed string
substitutions when entity values for entity references replacement was
enabled. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted XML file that,
when processed by an application linked against libxml2, would lead to
excessive CPU consumption. (CVE-2013-0338)

The desktop must be restarted (log out, then log back in) for this update
to
take effect.
