 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:017
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : libxml2
 Date    : March 5, 2013
 Affected: Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability has been found and corrected in libxml2:
 
 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 updated packages have been upgraded to the 2.7.6 version and
 patched to correct this issue.
