CVE-2009-2625 (
  Apache Xerces2 Java, as used in Sun Java Runtime Environment (JRE) in
  JDK and JRE 6 before Update 15 and JDK and JRE 5.0 before Update 20,
  and in other products, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
  service (infinite loop and application hang) via malformed XML input,
  as demonstrated by the Codenomicon XML fuzzing framework.

^ This is really a expat vuln, wrt bug 280615

CVE-2009-3560 (
  The big2_toUtf8 function in lib/xmltok.c in libexpat in Expat 2.0.1,
  as used in the XML-Twig module for Perl, allows context-dependent
  attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via an XML
  document with malformed UTF-8 sequences that trigger a buffer
  over-read, related to the doProlog function in lib/xmlparse.c, a
  different vulnerability than CVE-2009-2625 and CVE-2009-3720.
