    Ubuntu Security Notice USN-1784-1
    April 02, 2013
    
    libxslt vulnerability
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 12.10
    - Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 11.10
    - Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 8.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    Applications using libxslt could be made to crash if they processed a
    specially crafted file.
    
    Software Description:
    - libxslt: XSLT processing library
    
    Details:
    
    Nicholas Gregoire discovered that libxslt incorrectly handled certain empty
    values. If a user or automated system were tricked into processing a
    specially crafted XSLT document, a remote attacker could cause libxslt to
    crash, causing a denial of service.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 12.10:
      libxslt1.1                      1.1.26-14ubuntu0.1
    
    Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
      libxslt1.1                      1.1.26-8ubuntu1.3
    
    Ubuntu 11.10:
      libxslt1.1                      1.1.26-7ubuntu0.2
    
    Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
      libxslt1.1                      1.1.26-1ubuntu1.2
    
    Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
      libxslt1.1                      1.1.22-1ubuntu1.4
    
    In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
