Synopsis
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in libxml2, the worst of which
could result in the execution of arbitrary code.

Background
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

libxml2 is the XML (eXtended Markup Language) C parser and toolkit
initially developed for the Gnome project.

Affected packages
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

Description
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in libxml2. Please review
the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.

Impact
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

A remote attacker, by enticing a user to process a specially crafted
XML document, could remotely execute arbitrary code, conduct XML
External Entity (XXE) attacks, or cause a Denial of Service condition.

Workaround
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D

All libxml2 users should upgrade to the latest version:

=C2=A0 # emerge –sync
=C2=A0 # emerge –ask –oneshot –verbose “>=3Ddev-libs/libxml2-2.9.4-r3″

Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these
packages.
