    Several vulnerabilities were discovered in libxml2, a library providing
    support to read, modify and write XML and HTML files. A remote attacker
    could provide a specially crafted XML or HTML file that, when processed
    by an application using libxml2, would cause a denial-of-service against
    the application, or potentially the execution of arbitrary code with the
    privileges of the user running the application.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.9.1+dfsg1-5+deb8u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libxml2 packages.
