 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2008:212
http://www.mandriva.com/security/ 
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : libxml2
 Date    : October 15, 2008
 Affected: 2009.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 libxml2 version 2.7.0 and 2.7.1 did not properly handle predefined
 entities definitions in entities, which allowed context-dependent
 attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption and
 application crash) via certain XML documents (CVE-2008-4409).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to prevent this issue.
