Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2008:0649

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2008:0649.

libxslt is a library for transforming XML files into other XML files using
the standard XSLT stylesheet transformation mechanism.

A heap buffer overflow flaw was discovered in the RC4 libxslt library
extension. An attacker could create a malicious XSL file that would cause a
crash, or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
application using the libxslt library to perform XSL transformations on
untrusted XSL style sheets. (CVE-2008-2935)

Red Hat would like to thank Chris Evans for reporting this vulnerability.

All libxslt users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to resolve this issue.

Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
