Posted Aug 27, 2008
Authored by Mandriva | Site mandriva.com

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory - Andreas Solberg found a denial of service flaw in how libxml2 processed certain content. If an application linked against libxml2 processed such malformed XML content, it could cause the application to stop responding. The original fix used to correct this issue caused some applications that used the libxml2 library to crash. These new updated packages use a different fix that does not cause certain linked applications to crash as the old packages did.
