How to fix?

There is no fixed version for expat.

Overview

expat is a XML parser library written in C.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Out-of-Bounds. The vulnerability exists because there are multiple integer overflows in the XML_GetBuffer function that leads to a heap-based buffer overflow which may lead to further unspecified impact. CVE-2016-4472 is related to the original issues CVE-2015-1283 and CVE-2015-2716, which were both incomplete due to the possibility of having the overflow checks optimized out during compilation.
