Comment 1 Steven Haigh 2014-04-23 01:12:06 EDT
It looks like this is still vulnerable from 2011 and has never been updated.

Can anyone confirm that this is still a problem and has not been patched in the EPEL packages?
Comment 2 Tomas Hoger 2014-04-23 03:16:02 EDT
The latest built in epel-6 is xmlsec1-1.2.16-2.el6, from 2010, and pre-dates this bug report.
