The file types that can be shown depend on the user context in which the exploitable application is running. If the user is root a full compromise of the server--including confidential or sensitive files--would be possible. XXE can also be used to attack the availability of the server via denial of service as the references within a xml document can trivially trigger an amplification attack. Mitigation: Users should upgrade to Batik 1.9+ Credit: This issue was independently reported by Lars Krapf of Adobe and Pierre Ernst at Salesforce.
