 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2012:176
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : libxml2
 Date    : December 2, 2012
 Affected: 2011., Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability was found and corrected in libxml2:

 A heap-buffer overflow was found in the way libxml2 decoded certain
 XML entitites. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted
 XML file, which once opened in an application linked against libxml
 would cause that application to crash, or, potentially, execute
 arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application
 (CVE-2012-5134).

 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
