Enumeration attribute types. If a user were tricked into processing a
specially crafted XML document, a remote attacker could cause the
application linked against libxml2 to crash, leading to a denial of
service. (CVE-2009-2416)

corresponding update for Ubuntu 9.04.

remote attacker could execute arbitrary code with user privileges or cause
the application linked against libxml2 to crash, leading to a denial of
service. (CVE-2008-3529)
