Synopsis
========

A vulnerability in libxml2 could result in Denial of Service.

Background
==========

libxml2 is the XML C parser and toolkit developed for the Gnome
project.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 dev-libs/libxml2 < 2.9.2 >= 2.9.2

Description
===========

parser.c in libxml2 before 2.9.2 does not properly prevent entity
expansion even when entity substitution has been disabled.

Impact
======

A context-dependent attacker could entice a user to a specially crafted
XML file using an application linked against libxml2, possibly
resulting in a Denial of Service condition.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All libxml2 users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-libs/libxml2-2.9.2"

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