We have received reports that several vulnerabilities have been discovered in XML library implementations when parsing XML data. These vulnerabilities were reported by Codenomicon Labs to CERT-FI which has been the main contact point with vendors to coordinate the remediation of these vulnerabilities. According to the CERT-FI advisory, if the application remains unpatched, the program can access memory out of bounds or can loop indefinitely leading to a denial of service and potentially code execution.
