Fedora 12 : expat-2.0.1-8.fc12 (2009-12737)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 43014
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionTwo buffer over-read flaws were found in the way Expat handled malformed UTF-8 sequences when processing XML files. A specially crafted XML file could cause applications using Expat to crash while parsing the file. (CVE-2009-3560, CVE-2009-3720)
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected expat package.
