Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.70867
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-1153-1 (libxml2)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-1153-1 (libxml2)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to libxml2
announced via advisory USN-1153-1.

Details:

Chris Evans discovered that libxml2 incorrectly handled memory allocation.

attacker could cause a denial of service or possibly execute code as the
user invoking the program.

package versions:

Ubuntu 11.04:
libxml2 2.7.8.dfsg-2ubuntu0.1

Ubuntu 10.10:
libxml2 2.7.7.dfsg-4ubuntu0.2

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
