libxml2 'XPATH' Memory Corruption Vulnerability

The 'libxml2' library is prone to a memory-corruption vulnerability.

An attacker can exploit this issue by tricking a victim into opening a specially crafted XML file.

A successful attack can allow attacker-supplied code to run in the context of the application using the vulnerable library or can cause a denial-of-service condition.

'libxml2' versions prior to 2.7.8 are affected.
