Date Reported:
21 Jan 2018
Affected Packages:
Security database references:
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2017-12629.
More information:

Michael Stepankin and Olga Barinova discovered a remote code execution vulnerability in Apache Solr by exploiting XML External Entity processing (XXE) in conjunction with use of a Config API add-listener command to reach the RunExecutableListener class. To resolve this issue the RunExecutableListener class has been removed and resolving of external entities in the CoreParser class disallowed.

For Debian 7 Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 3.6.0+dfsg-1+deb7u3.

We recommend that you upgrade your lucene-solr packages.
