    Tilmann Haak from xing.com discovered that XML::LibXML, a Perl interface
    to the libxml2 library, did not respect the expand_entities parameter to
    disable processing of external entities in some circumstances. This may
    allow attackers to gain read access to otherwise protected ressources,
    depending on how the library is used.
