Bug Fix Advisory libxml2 bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2011:1416-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2011-11-01
Last updated on: 2011-11-01
Affected Products: RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated libxml2 packages that resolve an issue are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

The libxml2 library provides a development tool to manipulate XML and HTML
files. The library also implements various XML and HTML standards. One of those
standards is XML Schemas which allows validation of the content of an XML
document.

This update fixes the following bug:

* The libxml2 XML Schemas implementation allowed empty values for integer fields
using, for example, the predefined schemas type, xsd:byte. This led to unwanted
validation of documents that were invalid per these schemas. The implementation
has been modified to forbid those empty integer values, and all documents
containing such values will now fail the XML Schemas validation. (BZ#747865)

All users of libxml2 are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix
this bug.
