- CVE-2015-0252 (denial of service)
The Xerces-C XML parser mishandles certain kinds of malformed input
documents, resulting in a segmentation fault during a parse operation.
The bug does not appear to allow for remote code execution, but is a
denial of service attack that in many applications may allow for an
unauthenticated attacker to supply malformed input and cause a crash.
A remote attacker is able to send specially crafted documents that are
resulting in a segmentation fault leading to denial of service.
