How to fix?

There is no fixed version for Debian:11 libxslt.

NVD Description

Note: Versions mentioned in the description apply only to the upstream libxslt package and not the libxslt package as distributed by Debian:11. See How to fix? for Debian:11 relevant fixed versions and status.

In libxslt 1.1.29 and earlier, the EXSLT math.random function was not initialized with a random seed during startup, which could cause usage of this function to produce predictable outputs.
