An updated xerces-c package that fixes one security issue is now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Moderate security
impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which

Xerces-C is a validating XML parser written in a portable subset of C++.

A flaw was found in the way the Xerces-C XML parser processed certain XML
documents. A remote attacker could provide specially crafted XML input
that, when parsed by an application using Xerces-C, would cause that
application to crash. (CVE-2015-0252)

All xerces-c users are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
contains a backported patch to correct this issue.
