Vulnerability Details

CVEID: CVE-2015-7941
DESCRIPTION:
Libxml2 could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by improper validation when processing XML files. By using a specially-crafted XML file, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause an out of bounds read error allowing the attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system.
CVSS Base Score: 9.8
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/108071 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
