SuSE 10 Security Update : libxml2 (ZYPP Patch Number 5982)

High Nessus Plugin ID 41556


The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.


A previous security fix for libxml2 caused problems when processing large xml files. The patch has been reworked so processing large files works again.


Apply ZYPP patch number 5982.
