3. Description:

The libxml2 library is a development toolbox providing the implementation
of various XML standards.

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)

All users of libxml2 are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain a backported patch to correct this issue. The desktop must
be restarted (log out, then log back in) for this update to take effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redha.../articles/11258

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

912400 - CVE-2013-0338 libxml2: CPU consumption DoS when performing string substitutions during entities expansion
