Version: 1.1.32-2
Severity: important
Tags: security upstream


The following vulnerability was published for libxslt.

| In numbers.c in libxslt 1.1.33, an xsl:number with certain format
| strings could lead to a uninitialized read in
| xsltNumberFormatInsertNumbers. This could allow an attacker to discern
| whether a byte on the stack contains the characters A, a, I, i, or 0,
| or any other character.

The oss-fuzz report and testcases are not public at this moment, but
still filling the bug according to source code view and patch to be
applied. I have no futher details unfortunately.

CVE (Common Vulnerabilities & Exposures) id in your changelog entry.
