    handling XML data files, does not well process a malformed XPATH,
    causing crash and allowing arbitrary code execution.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.6.32.dfsg-5+lenny2.
    
    For the testing (squeeze) and unstable (sid) distribution, this problem
    has been fixed in version 2.7.8.dfsg-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libxml2 package.
