|Description||The encoding/xml package in Go versions 1.15 and earlier does not correctly preserve the semantics of directives during tokenization round-trips, which allows an attacker to craft inputs that behave in conflicting ways during different stages of processing in affected downstream applications.|
|Source||CVE (at NVD; CERT, LWN, oss-sec, fulldisc, Red Hat, Ubuntu, Gentoo, SUSE bugzilla/CVE, GitHub advisories/code/issues, web search, more)|
Vulnerable and fixed packages
The table below lists information on source packages.
The information below is based on the following data on fixed versions.
|Package||Type||Release||Fixed Version||Urgency||Origin||Debian Bugs|
[stretch] - golang-1.8 <ignored> (deemed unfixable by upstream who shifts responsibility to saml packages we don't ship)
[stretch] - golang-1.7 <ignored> (deemed unfixable by upstream who shifts responsibility to saml packages we don't ship)
Upstream considers this WONTFIX and requires validation/updates in potentially affected SAML libs
