XML external entity injection (also known as XXE) is a web security vulnerability that allows an attacker to interfere with an application's processing of XML data. It often allows an attacker to view files on the application server filesystem, and to interact with any back-end or external systems that the application itself can access. Credit: The Apache Any23 Project Management Committee would like to thank Zhuxuan Wu for reporting the security vulnerability. -- http://home.apache.org/~lewismc/ http://people.apache.org/keys/committer/lewismc
