Subject: Out-of-bounds Read in the libxml2's htmlParseNameComplex() function



Hello,
We find a vulnerability in the way libxml2's htmlParseNameComplex() function parsed certain xml file.
I was successful in reproducing this issuel in the latest version of libxml2(git clone git://git.gnome.org/libxml2).
HTMLparser.c line:2517 :

       return(xmlDictLookup(ctxt->dict, ctxt->input->cur - len, len));

"ctxt->input->cur - len"  cause Out-of-bounds Read.
