openSUSE Security Update : libxml2 (openSUSE-2019-2612)

low Nessus Plugin ID 131683
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


This update for libxml2 doesn't fix any additional security issues, but correct its rpm changelog to reflect all CVEs that have been fixed over the past. This update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-15:Update update project.


Update the affected libxml2 packages.
