Microsoft: XmlLite Runtime Denial of Service Vulnerability


A denial of service vulnerability exists when the XmlLite runtime (XmlLite.dll) improperly parses XML input. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could cause a denial of service against an XML application. A remote unauthenticated attacker could exploit this vulnerability by issuing specially crafted requests to an XML application. The update addresses the vulnerability by correcting how the XmlLite runtime parses XML input.
