Description

internal/cimxml/sax/NodeFactory.java in Standards-Based Linux Instrumentation for Manageability (SBLIM) Common Information Model (CIM) Client (aka sblim-cim-client2) before 2.1.12 computes hash values without restricting the ability to trigger hash collisions predictably, which allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (CPU consumption) via a crafted XML file.
