The remote host is missing updates announced in
Raptor provides parsers for Resource Description Framework (RDF) files.
An XML External Entity expansion flaw was found in the way Raptor processed
RDF files. If an application linked against Raptor were to open a
specially-crafted RDF file, it could possibly allow a remote attacker to
obtain a copy of an arbitrary local file that the user running the
application had access to. A bug in the way Raptor handled external
entities could cause that application to crash or, possibly, execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application.
Red Hat would like to thank Timothy D. Morgan of VSR for reporting this
All Raptor users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which

linked against Raptor must be restarted for this update to take effect.
