Date Reported:
28 Jun 2021
Affected Packages:
Security database references:
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2021-23926.
More information:

The XML parsers used by XMLBeans did not set the properties needed to protect the user from malicious XML input. Vulnerabilities include the possibility for XML Entity Expansion attacks which could lead to a denial-of-service. This update implements sensible defaults for the XML parsers to prevent these kind of attacks.

For Debian 9 stretch, this problem has been fixed in version 2.6.0+dfsg-1+deb9u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your xmlbeans packages.
