CVE-2015-7942

Disclosure Date: November 18, 2015
Add MITRE ATT&CK tactics and techniques that apply to this CVE.

Description

The xmlParseConditionalSections function in parser.c in libxml2 does not properly skip intermediary entities when it stops parsing invalid input, which allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and crash) via crafted XML data, a different vulnerability than CVE-2015-7941.
