  - update to 2.6.2:
    * CVE-2024-28757 -- Prevent billion laughs attacks with isolated
      use of external parsers (boo#1221289)
    * Reject direct parameter entity recursion and avoid the related
      undefined behavior
* Fri Mar 01 2024 Andreas Stieger <>
  - update to 2.6.1:
    * Expose billion laughs API with XML_DTD defined and XML_GE
      undefined, regression from 2.6.0
    * Make tests independent of CPU speed, and thus more robust
  - drop libxml2-fix-xmlwf.1-handling.patch, upstream
* Tue Feb 20 2024 David Anes <>
  - Fix handling of xmlwf.1 to avoid workarounds in specfile:
    * Added libxml2-fix-xmlwf.1-handling.patch
  - Call to avoid (future) issues with
* Mon Feb 12 2024 David Anes <>
  - Update keyring automatically from keyserver during OBS service run.
  - Explicitly use --without-docbook (before it was implicit).
  - Include missing files for documentation and examples.
  - Add manpage for xmlwf, which is now available in the released tarball.
  - Clean the spec file a bit.
  - Update to 2.6.0:
    * Security fixes:
    - CVE-2023-52425 (boo#1219559)
    - - Fix quadratic runtime issues with big tokens
      that can cause denial of service, in partial where
      dealing with compressed XML input.  Applications
      that parsed a document in one go -- a single call to
      functions XML_Parse or XML_ParseBuffer -- were not affected.
      The smaller the chunks/buffers you use for parsing
      previously, the bigger the problem prior to the fix.
      Backporters should be careful to no omit parts of
      pull request #789 and to include earlier pull request #771,
      in order to not break the fix.

      in doc/reference.html but also in header <expat.h>
    - Document Expat's lack of validation of namespace URIs against
      RFC 3986, and that the XML 1.0r4 specification doesn't
      require Expat to validate namespace URIs, and that Expat
      may do more in that regard in future releases.
      If you find need for strict RFC 3986 URI validation on
      application level today, may
      be of interest.

  - update to 2.4.6 (bsc#1196168, CVE-2022-25313):
    * Bug fixes:
    - Fix a regression introduced by the fix for CVE-2022-25313
      in release 2.4.5 that affects applications that (1)
      call function XML_SetElementDeclHandler and (2) are
      parsing XML that contains nested element declarations
      (e.g. "<!ELEMENT junk ((bar|foo|xyz+), zebra*)>").
    - Version info bumped from 9:5:8 to 9:6:8;
      see for what these numbers do.
* Sat Feb 19 2022 David Anes <>

    bsc#1196026, bsc#1196025):
    * Security fixes:
    - CVE-2022-25235 -- Passing malformed 2- and 3-byte UTF-8
      sequences (e.g. from start tag names) to the XML
      processing application on top of Expat can cause
      arbitrary damage (e.g. code execution) depending
      on how invalid UTF-8 is handled inside the XML
      processor; validation was not their job but Expat's.
      Exploits with code execution are known to exist.
    - CVE-2022-25236 -- Passing (one or more) namespace separator
      characters in "xmlns[:prefix]" attribute values
      made Expat send malformed tag names to the XML
      processor on top of Expat which can cause
      arbitrary damage (e.g. code execution) depending
      on such unexpectable cases are handled inside the XML
      processor; validation was not their job but Expat's.
      Exploits with code execution are known to exist.
    - CVE-2022-25313 -- Fix stack exhaustion in doctype parsing
      that could be triggered by e.g. a 2 megabytes
      file with a large number of opening braces.
      Expected impact is denial of service or potentially
      arbitrary code execution.
    - CVE-2022-25314 -- Fix integer overflow in function copyString;
      only affects the encoding name parameter at parser creation
      time which is often hardcoded (rather than user input),
      takes a value in the gigabytes to trigger, and a 64-bit
      machine.  Expected impact is denial of service.
    - CVE-2022-25315 -- Fix integer overflow in function storeRawNames;
      needs input in the gigabytes and a 64-bit machine.
      Expected impact is denial of service or potentially
      arbitrary code execution.

  - update to 2.4.4 (bsc#1195217, bsc#1195054):
    * Security fixes:
    - CVE-2022-23852 -- Fix signed integer overflow
      (undefined behavior) in function XML_GetBuffer
      that is also called by function XML_Parse internally)
      for when XML_CONTEXT_BYTES is defined to >0 (which is both
      common and default).
      Impact is denial of service or more.
    - CVE-2022-23990 -- Fix unsigned integer overflow in function
      doProlog triggered by large content in element type
      declarations when there is an element declaration handler
      present (from a prior call to XML_SetElementDeclHandler).
      Impact is denial of service or more.
    * Bug fixes:
    - xmlwf: Fix a memory leak on output file opening error
    * Other changes:
    - Version info bumped from 9:3:8 to 9:4:8;

      bsc#1194476, bsc#1194477, bsc#1194478, bsc#1194479, bsc#1194480):
    * CVE-2021-45960 -- Fix issues with left shifts by >=29 places
      resulting in
      a) realloc acting as free
      b) realloc allocating too few bytes
      c) undefined behavior
      depending on architecture and precise value
      for XML documents with >=2^27+1 prefixed attributes
      on a single XML tag a la
      "<r xmlns:a='[..]' a:a123='[..]' [..] />"
      where XML_ParserCreateNS is used to create the parser
      (which needs argument "-n" when running xmlwf).
      Impact is denial of service, or more.
    * CVE-2021-46143 (ZDI-CAN-16157) -- Fix integer overflow
      on variable m_groupSize in function doProlog leading
      to realloc acting as free.
      Impact is denial of service or more.
    * CVE-2022-22822 to CVE-2022-22827 -- Prevent integer overflows

* Mon May 24 2021 Pedro Monreal <>
  - Update to 2.4.0: [CVE-2013-0340 "Billion Laughs"]
    * Security fixes:
    - CVE-2013-0340/CWE-776 -- Protect against billion laughs attacks
      (denial-of-service; flavors targeting CPU time or RAM or both,
      leveraging general entities or parameter entities or both)
      by tracking and limiting the input amplification factor
      (<amplification> := (<direct> + <indirect>) / <direct>).
      By conservative default, amplification up to a factor of 100.0
      is tolerated and rejection only starts after 8 MiB of output bytes
      (=<direct> + <indirect>) have been processed.
      The fix adds the following to the API:
      signals this specific condition.
    - Two new API functions ..
    - XML_SetBillionLaughsAttackProtectionMaximumAmplification and
    - XML_SetBillionLaughsAttackProtectionActivationThreshold
      .. to further tighten billion laughs protection parameters
      when desired.  Please see file "doc/reference.html" for details.
      If you ever need to increase the defaults for non-attack XML
      payload, please file a bug report with libexpat.
    - Two new XML_FEATURE_* constants ..
    - that can be queried using the XML_GetFeatureList function, and
    - that are shown in "xmlwf -v" output.
    - Two new environment variable switches ..
    - EXPAT_ACCOUNTING_DEBUG=(0|1|2|3) and
      .. for runtime debugging of accounting and entity processing.
      Specific behavior of these values may change in the future.
    - Two new command line arguments "-a FACTOR" and "-b BYTES"
      for xmlwf to further tighten billion laughs protection
      parameters when desired.
      If you ever need to increase the defaults for non-attack XML
      payload, please file a bug report with libexpat.
    * Bug fixes:
    - For (non-default) compilation with -DEXPAT_MIN_SIZE=ON (CMake)
      or CPPFLAGS=-DXML_MIN_SIZE (GNU Autotools): Fix segfault
      for UTF-16 payloads containing CDATA sections.
    - Autotools: Fix generated CMake files for non-64bit and
      non-Linux platforms (e.g. macOS and MinGW in particular)
      that were introduced with release 2.3.0
    * Other changes:
    - xmlwf: Improve help output and the xmlwf man page
    - xmlwf: Improve maintainability through some refactoring
    - xmlwf: Fix man page DocBook validity

    - doc/reference.html: Replace the 90s look by OK.css
    - Version info bumped from 8:0:7 to 9:0:8 due to addition of
      new symbols and error codes; see for
      what these numbers do
* Tue Apr 13 2021 Dominique Leuenberger <>
  - Do not BuildRequire cmake: expat is part of the distro bootstrap
    cycle and any additional dependency makes the ring larger. In
    this case here, cmake was even only used to own a directory.
* Tue Apr 06 2021 Dirk Müller <>
  - update to 2.3.0:
    * When calling XML_ParseBuffer without a prior successful call to
      XML_GetBuffer as a user, no longer trigger undefined behavior
      (by adding an integer to a NULL pointer) but rather return
      XML_STATUS_ERROR and set the error code to (new) code
      XML_ERROR_NO_BUFFER. Found by UBSan (UndefinedBehaviorSanitizer)
      of Clang 11 (but not Clang 9).
    * xmlwf: Exit status 2 was used for both:
    - malformed input files (documented) and
    - invalid command-line arguments (undocumented).
      case of invalid command-line arguments now
      has its own exit status 4, resolving the ambiguity.
