Christey" <coley@...us.mitre.org> CC: oss-security <oss-security@...ts.openwall.com> Subject: CVE Request -- LuaExpat -- Prone to XML "billion laughs attack" Hello, Josh, Steve, vendors, It was found that LuaExpat, a SAX XML parser based on the Expat library, is prone to XML "billion laughs attack", as described in:  http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/xml/library/x-tipcfsx/index.html#N100F1 A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted XML file, which once opened in an application, linked against LuaExpat, could cause that application to crash.

Thank you & Regards, Jan. -- Jan iankko Lieskovsky / Red Hat Security Response Team
