Description GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2013-12-27 01:57:08 UTC
CVE-2013-4520 (
  xslt.c in libxslt before 1.1.25 allows context-dependent attackers to cause
  a denial of service (crash) via a stylesheet that embeds a DTD, which causes
  a structure to be accessed as a different type.  NOTE: this issue is due to
  an incomplete fix for CVE-2012-2825.

Just filing to make CVETool happy, nothing to see here.
