Subject: CVE Request - XXE in Pentaho Business Analytics

Hi there,

I've discovered an XXE vulnerability in Pentaho Business Analytics
Community Edition due to Pentaho's xml parser not disabling the
parsing of external entities.

This issue has been reported to the vendor several times, who has refused
to fix it in the community edition unless an enterprise license is
purchased.  I've created a Github issue ( for someone in the
community to submit a patch.

Could a CVE ID please be assigned to this issue.
