Debian Security Advisory DSA-2978-2 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Alessandro Ghedini February 06, 2015 http://www.debian.org/security/faq


Package : libxml2 CVE ID : CVE-2014-0191 CVE-2014-3660 Debian Bug : 768089

It was discovered that the update released for libxml2 in DSA 2978 fixing CVE-2014-0191 was incomplete. This caused libxml2 to still fetch external entities regardless of whether entity substitution or validation is enabled.

In addition, this update addresses a regression introduced in DSA 3057 by the patch fixing CVE-2014-3660. This caused libxml2 to not parse an entity when it's used first in another entity referenced from an attribute value.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 2.8.0+dfsg1-7+wheezy3.

For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 2.9.1+dfsg1-4.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 2.9.1+dfsg1-4.

We recommend that you upgrade your libxml2 packages.
