Package        : xmltooling
Version        : 1.5.3-2+deb8u4
CVE ID         : CVE-2019-9628
Debian Bug     : 924346

Ross Geerlings discovered that the XMLTooling library didn't correctly
handle exceptions on malformed XML declarations, which could result in
denial of service against the application using XMLTooling.

For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
1.5.3-2+deb8u4.

We recommend that you upgrade your xmltooling packages.
