CVE-2016-4658

Priority
Medium
Description
xpointer.c in libxml2 before 2.9.5 (as used in Apple iOS before 10, OS X
before 10.12, tvOS before 10, and watchOS before 3, and other products)
does not forbid namespace nodes in XPointer ranges, which allows remote
attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service
(use-after-free and memory corruption) via a crafted XML document.
