Source: libxslt
Version: 1.1.32-2
Severity: important
Tags: security upstream
Forwarded: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/libxslt/issues/12


The following vulnerability was published for libxslt.

| libxslt through 1.1.33 allows bypass of a protection mechanism because
| callers of xsltCheckRead and xsltCheckWrite permit access even upon
| receiving a -1 error code. xsltCheckRead can return -1 for a crafted
| URL that is not actually invalid and is subsequently loaded.

If you fix the vulnerability please also make sure to include the
CVE (Common Vulnerabilities & Exposures) id in your changelog entry.
