Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : xerces-j2 (MDVSA-2014:193)
High Nessus Plugin ID 78019
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA resource consumption issue was found in the way Xerces-J handled XML declarations. A remote attacker could use an XML document with a specially crafted declaration using a long pseudo-attribute name that, when parsed by an application using Xerces-J, would cause that application to use an excessive amount of CPU (CVE-2013-4002).
SolutionUpdate the affected xerces-j2, xerces-j2-demo and / or xerces-j2-javadoc packages.
