Insight

Insight

A resource consumption issue was found in the way Xerces-J handled XML declarations. A remote attacker could use an XML document with a specially crafted declaration using a long pseudo-attribute name that, when parsed by an application using Xerces-J, would cause that application to use an excessive amount of CPU.

Solution

Solution

Run yum update xerces-j2 to update your system.
