Disclosure Date: June 16, 2016
Add MITRE ATT&CK tactics and techniques that apply to this CVE.

Description

The XML parser in Expat does not use sufficient entropy for hash initialization, which allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (CPU consumption) via crafted identifiers in an XML document. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2012-0876.
