Mandrake Drew Yaro of the Apple Product Security Team found two flaws in libxml2. The first is a denial of service flaw in libxml2's XML parser.

 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2008:231
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : libxml2
 Date    : November 18, 2008
 Affected: 2008.0, 2008.1, 2009.0, Corporate 3.0, Corporate 4.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Drew Yaro of the Apple Product Security Team found two flaws in
 libxml2.  The first is a denial of service flaw in libxml2's XML
 parser.  If an application linked against libxml2 were to process
 certain malformed XML content, it cause the application to enter an
 infinite loop (CVE-2008-4225).
 
 The second is an integer overflow that caused a heap-based buffer
 overflow in libxml2's XML parser.  If an application linked against
 libxml2 were to process certain malformed XML content, it could
 cause the application to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code
 (CVE-2008-4226).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
