CentOS Errata and Security Advisory CESA-2016:1292

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

Security Fix(es):

A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way libxml2 parsed certain crafted XML input. A remote attacker could provide a specially crafted XML file that, when opened in an application linked against libxml2, would cause the application to crash or execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running the application. (CVE-2016-1834, CVE-2016-1840)

Multiple denial of service flaws were found in libxml2. A remote attacker could provide a specially crafted XML file that, when processed by an application using libxml2, could cause that application to crash.
(CVE-2016-1762, CVE-2016-1833, CVE-2016-1835, CVE-2016-1836, CVE-2016-1837, CVE-2016-1838, CVE-2016-1839, CVE-2016-3627, CVE-2016-3705, CVE-2016-4447, CVE-2016-4448, CVE-2016-4449)
