Description

The version of Symantec Content Analysis running on the remote host is prior to version 2.3.1.1. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability in the xmlBufAttrSerializeTxtContent function in xmlsave.c in libxml2 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and application crash) via a non-UTF-8 attribute value, related to serialization.
