    It was discovered that libxerces2-java, a validating XML parser for Java,
    does not properly process malformed XML files.
    This vulnerability could allow an attacker to cause a denial of service while parsing
    a malformed XML file.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.8.1-1+etch1.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.9.1-2+lenny1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.9.1-4.1, and will migrate to the testing distribution (squeeze)
    shortly.
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libxerces2-java package.
