Package: xerces25
Severity: normal

Good day,

>From [CAN-2004-1575] :

| The XML parser in Xerces-C++ 2.5.0 allows remote attackers to cause a
| denial of service (CPU consumption) via XML attributes in a crafted
| XML document.

This problem have been fixed in version 2.6 of Xerces.

It's not clear to me if prior versions ( xerces24, xerces23, xerces22,
xerces21) are also vulnerable. 

I can filed bugs if you think it's appropriate.

Could you also mention the CAN number in changelog entries about this problem.
