Slackware New libxml2 packages are available for Slackware 12.1, 12.2, 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, and -current to fix a security issue. [More Info...]
[slackware-security]  libxml2 (SSA:2012-341-03)

New libxml2 packages are available for Slackware 12.1, 12.2, 13.0, 13.1, 13.37,
14.0, and -current to fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/libxml2-2.8.0-i486-2_slack14.0.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Patched a heap-based buffer underflow in the xmlParseAttValueComplex
  function in parser.c in libxml2 2.9.0 and earlier that could allow a
  remote attacker to cause a denial of service or possibly execute
  arbitrary code via crafted entities in an XML document.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2012-5134
  (* Security fix *)
