Fedora Update Notification
2019-10-02 01:40:18.127652

Name : expat
Product : Fedora 29
Version : 2.2.8
Release : 1.fc29
Summary : An XML parser library
Description :
This is expat, the C library for parsing XML, written by James Clark. Expat
is a stream oriented XML parser. This means that you register handlers with
the parser prior to starting the parse. These handlers are called when the
parser discovers the associated structures in the document being parsed. A
start tag is an example of the kind of structures for which you may
register handlers.

Update Information:

This update of `expat` fixes the following security issue: * **CVE-2019-15903**
— Fix heap overflow triggered by `XML_GetCurrentLineNumber` (or
`XML_GetCurrentColumnNumber`), and deny internal entities closing the doctype
The following bug fixes are also included: * Fix cases where `XML_StopParser`
did not have any effect when called from inside of an end element handler *
xmlwf: Fix exit code for operation without “`-d DIRECTORY`” previously, only
“`-d DIRECTORY`” would give you a proper exit code
