The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200806-02
(libxslt: Execution of arbitrary code)
Anthony de Almeida Lopes reported a vulnerability in libxslt when
handling XSL style-sheet files, which could be exploited to trigger the
use of uninitialized memory, e.g. in a call to 'free()'.
A remote attacker could entice a user or automated system to process an
XML file using a specially crafted XSL transformation file, possibly
resulting in the execution of arbitrary code or a Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
