Comment 2 Erik van Pienbroek 2015-02-11 11:35:53 UTC
This bug looks invalid, in EPEL there is no mingw32-libxml2 (source) package but it was replaced the mingw-libxml2 source package which contains the binary packages mingw32-libxml2 and mingw64-libxml2. The current version of the mingw-libxml2 package in EPEL-7 is mingw-libxml2-2.9.2-1.el7 (http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=600663) which already contains the fix for this security issue

Comment 3 Tomas Hoger 2015-02-11 11:57:39 UTC
Sorry, you are correct.  I was updating information about affected packages in bug 1090976, and I re-used entry for now removed epel-5 mingw32-libxml2 and failed to change component name while changing epel-5 -> epel-7.  I was also looking at outdated manifest, which listed 2.9.1 used in epel-7.
