|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: libxslt: Denial of Service (GLSA 201203-08)
Date: March 06, 2012
A vulnerability in libxslt could result in Denial of Service.
libxslt is the XSLT C library developed for the GNOME project. XSLT is
an XML language to define transformations for XML.
Vulnerable: < 1.1.26-r3
Unaffected: >= 1.1.26-r3
Architectures: All supported architectures
An out of bounds read error has been found in libxslt/pattern.c in
A remote attacker could entice a user to process an XML file using a
specially crafted XSLT stylesheet in an application linked against
libxslt, possibly resulting in a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All libxslt users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-libs/libxslt-1.1.26-r3"
