XML bomb protection for Python stdlib modules (for Python 2)
The results of an attack on a vulnerable XML library can be fairly dramatic. With just a few hundred bytes of XML data an attacker can occupy several gigabytes of memory within seconds. An attacker can also keep CPUs busy for a long time with a small to medium size request.
This library allows for XML to be parsed in a manner that avoids these pitfalls.
This package contains the module for the Python 2 interpreter.
