CVE-2015-7942

Description

The xmlParseConditionalSections function in parser.c in libxml2 does not properly skip intermediary entities when it stops parsing invalid input, which allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and crash) via crafted XML data, a different vulnerability than CVE-2015-7941. #### Bugs * <https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=756456> * <https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=802827>
