 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                       MDVSA-2011:131-1
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : libxml
 Date    : October 9, 2011
 Affected: 2011.
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in
 libxml/libxml2:
 
 Integer overflow in xpath.c in libxml2 2.6.x through 2.6.32 and 2.7.x
 through 2.7.8, and libxml 1.8.16 and earlier, allows context-dependent
 attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute
 arbitrary code via a crafted XML file that triggers a heap-based
 buffer overflow when adding a new namespace node, related to handling
 of XPath expressions (CVE-2011-1944).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.

 Update:

 Packages were misssing for Mandriva Linux 2011 with the MDVSA-2011:131
 advisory which are now being provided.
