The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.
This update for libxml2 fixes the following issues :
- CVE-2016-9318: libxml2 did not offer a flag directly
indicating that the current document may be read but
other files may not be opened, which made it easier for
remote attackers to conduct XML External Entity (XXE)
attacks via a crafted document (bsc#1010675).
- Prevent NULL dereference in xpointer.c and
xmlDumpElementContent, and infinite recursion in
xmlParseConditionalSections when in recovery
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
