Description

Jueri Aedla discovered an off-by-one in libxml2, which could result in the execution of arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 2.7.8.dfsg-2+squeeze4.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 2.7.8.dfsg-9.1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libxml2 packages.
