IBM Case Manager V5.2.0 is not fixed as the fix requires JDK 1.8 and this will
not be compatible with the application server versions that is supported with
this version of Case Manager. IBM recommends upgrading to a fixed, supported
version/release/platform of the product.

IBM Case Manager V5.1.1 is no longer in full support; IBM recommends upgrading
to a fixed, supported version/release/platform of the product.

 

Workarounds and Mitigations

The issue can be mitigated by preventing XXE injection into the solution zip
package in doing the following:

 1. Ensuring that the solution package export and import process is well
    controlled, where the package is not exposed to modification.
 2. Generating a checksum for the solution export zip package immediately after
    export, and validating the checksum prior to import to ensure package
    consistency.
