Almost certainly not. There is no mention of dev-libs/libxslt in that bug report.
Comment 3 Mike Gilbert gentoo-dev 2017-05-17 03:06:33 UTC
Upstream fix is here:

As far as I can tell, it has not been include in any versioned release yet.
Comment 4 Thomas Deutschmann (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2017-06-06 13:53:11 UTC
@ Maintainer(s): Please consider a rev bump to add patches for this vulnerability and bug 598204.
Comment 5 Gilles Dartiguelongue (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2017-09-05 06:59:10 UTC
This patch made it to 1.1.30 release that I just added to the tree.
Comment 6 Christopher Díaz Riveros (RETIRED) gentoo-dev Security 2017-09-05 15:49:16 UTC

Please note I have just noticed systemd stopping building with this version (#630022). It's because of this commit:

Maybe Toralf could run a *stable* tinderbox to rebuild all dev-libs/libxslt reverse deps and see if others are broken too :/ Thanks! :)

Sure, for dev-libs/libxslt-1.1.30 being keyworded at that stable image or for the current stable 1.1.29 ?
Comment 9 Mike Gilbert gentoo-dev 2017-09-05 20:29:32 UTC
Adding app-text/docbook-xsl-stylesheets-1.79.1-r2 for bug 630022 and 630024.
Comment 10 Aaron Bauman (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2017-09-05 21:12:20 UTC
Removing arches until Toralf finishes his tinderbox run.

> Removing arches until Toralf finishes his tinderbox run.

It would probably be useful to start over with app-text/docbook-xsl-stylesheets-1.79.1-r2 installed -- otherwise we are going to end up with a bunch of duplicates.

For 1.1.30 :)

Well, so >4,600 packages already emerged here at the run/13.0-desktop-gnome-systemd_stable_20170905-222907 image, will let it continue to run few more days, but seems fine so far.
Comment 14 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2017-09-14 11:25:53 UTC
Yeah, probably most were caused by app-text/docbook-xsl-stylesheets needing to be adapted and we can go ahead :)

Thanks a lot

Comment 23 Markus Meier gentoo-dev 2017-12-12 18:38:07 UTC
arm stable, all arches done.
Comment 24 Mart Raudsepp gentoo-dev 2017-12-13 09:48:51 UTC
I've removed security supported arch keywords from the vulnerable version. Don't want to break arm64 stage3 building even more before I can stabilize libxslt there and clean up the ebuild. This should be sufficient for security purposes for supported arches.
Comment 25 Mart Raudsepp gentoo-dev 2018-03-02 17:07:58 UTC
cleanup fully done after stabling arm64; I don't see a glsa vote having happened here?
Comment 26 Aaron Bauman (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2018-04-03 19:41:28 UTC
GLSA request filed.
