  files, such as XML files.

  A flaw was found in the way the Apache Xerces2 Java Parser processed the
  SYSTEM identifier in DTDs. A remote attacker could provide a
  specially-crafted XML file, which once parsed by an application using the
  Apache Xerces2 Java Parser, would lead to a denial of service (application
  hang due to excessive CPU use). (CVE-2009-2625)

  Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported
  patch to correct this issue. Applications using the Apache Xerces2 Java
  Parser must be restarted for this update to take effect.");
