XML bomb protection for Python stdlib modules (for Python 3)


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 3 interpreter.
