Subject: CVE Request: additional fix for CVE-2012-2825 libxslt crash


Our QA found that the reproducer in CVE-2012-2825 (magic.xsl and magic.xml)
also expose another libxslt crash in older libxslt versions.

This bug was fixed in libxslt 1.1.25 with this commit:

commit 7089a62b8f133b42a2981cf1f920a8b3fe9a8caa

    Crash compiling stylesheet with DTD

    * libxslt/xslt.c: when a stylesheet embbeds a DTD the compilation
      process could get seriously wrong

Crash as a xmlDtd struct is accessed as a xmlNode, not really attacker controllable
I would say, but a denial of service (crash).

Ciao, Marcus
