Description (partial)

Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CallManager) includes a version of libxml2 that is affected by the vulnerabilities identified by the
following Common Vunlerability and Exposure (CVE IDs:) 


A denial of service flaw was found in libxml2, a library providing support to read, modify and write XML and HTML files. A remote attacker could
provide a specially crafted XML file that, when processed by an application using libxml2, would lead to excessive CPU consumption (denial of
service) based on excessive entity substitutions, even if entity substitution was disabled, which is the parser default behavior.
