Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201401-07 (libxslt: Denial of Service)

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in libxslt:
  Multiple errors exist in pattern.c and functions.c (CVE-2012-2870,         CVE-2012-6139).
  A double-free error exists in templates.c (CVE-2012-2893).
  A NULL pointer dereference in keys.c (CVE-2012-6139).
  An error in handling stylesheets containing DTDs (CVE-2013-4520).

Impact :

A remote attacker could entice a user to process a specially crafted       file in an application linked against libxslt, possibly resulting in a       Denial of Service condition.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
