 Package : xerces-c
 Date    : December 4, 2009
 Affected: 2008.0

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability has been found and corrected in xerces-c:
 
 Stack consumption vulnerability in validators/DTD/DTDScanner.cpp in
 Apache Xerces C++ 2.7.0 and 2.8.0 allows context-dependent attackers to
 cause a denial of service (application crash) via vectors involving
 nested parentheses and invalid byte values in simply nested DTD
 structures, as demonstrated by the Codenomicon XML fuzzing framework
 (CVE-2009-1885).
 
 This update provides a solution to this vulnerability.
