DESCRIPTION
 The XML C library (libxml2) is used by many programs to load and save
 extensible datastructures or to manipulate several kinds of XML
 files.
 
 This update fixes a buffer overflow vulnerability[1,2] in the URI
 parsing code of the nanoftp and nanohttp modules of libxml2. An
 attacker can exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code
 with the privileges of the user running an affected application.
 Depending of the scenario where this application is used, this
 vulnerability can be remotely exploitable.


SOLUTION
 All users should update.
