Red Hat Security Advisory 2016-2824-01 - Expat is a C library for parsing XML documents. Security Fix: An out-of-bounds read flaw was found in the way Expat processed certain input. A remote attacker could send specially crafted XML that, when parsed by an application using the Expat library, would cause that application to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the permission of the user running the application.

Ubuntu Security Notice 3044-1 - Gustavo Grieco discovered an out-of-bounds read during XML parsing in some circumstances. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service via application crash, or obtain sensitive information. Toni Huttunen discovered that once a favicon is requested from a site, the remote server can keep the network connection open even after the page is closed. A remote attacker could potentially exploit this to track users, resulting in information disclosure. Various other issues were also addressed.

Ubuntu Security Notice 3013-1 - It was discovered that the Expat code in XML-RPC for C and C++ unexpectedly called srand in certain circumstances. This could reduce the security of calling applications. It was discovered that the Expat code in XML-RPC for C and C++ incorrectly handled seeding the random number generator. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause a denial of service. Gustavo Grieco discovered that the Expat code in XML-RPC for C and C++ incorrectly handled malformed XML data. If a user or application linked against XML-RPC for C and C++ were tricked into opening a crafted XML file, an attacker could cause a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code. Various other issues were also addressed.
