Description David Walser 2014-03-27 18:23:51 CET
Debian has issued an advisory on March 26:
http://www.debian.org/security/2014/dsa-2886

Reproducible: 

Steps to Reproduce:
Comment 1 David Walser 2014-04-01 00:09:25 CEST
Patched packages uploaded for Mageia 3, Mageia 4, and Cauldron.

Note to QA: just testing that these install should be sufficient.

Advisory:
========================

Updated xalan-j2 packages fix security vulnerability:

Nicolas Gregoire discovered several vulnerabilities in libxalan2-java.
Crafted XSLT programs could access system properties or load arbitrary
classes, resulting in information disclosure and, potentially, arbitrary
code execution (CVE-2014-0107).

Testing complete mga3 32 & 64

As with most java stuff, just checking the update installs cleanly, which it does.

Comment 4 claire robinson 2014-04-01 17:37:26 CEST
