  • CVE-2016-5131: Use-after-free vulnerability in libxml2 allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via vectors related to the XPointer range-to function. (bsc#1078813)

  • CVE-2017-5130: Fixed a potential remote buffer overflow in function xmlMemoryStrdup() (bsc#1078806)
