Oracle Linux 7 : libxml2 (ELSA-2021-3810)

Description

The remote Oracle Linux 7 host has packages installed that are affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the ELSA-2021-3810 advisory. - xpointer.c in libxml2 before 2.9.5 (as used in Apple iOS before 10, OS X before 10.12, tvOS before 10, and watchOS before 3, and other products) does not forbid namespace nodes in XPointer ranges, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (use-after-free and memory corruption) via a crafted XML document. (CVE-2016-4658) Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
