Security Bulletin

Summary

Apache Xalan-Java is included as separate JAR files for the compliance
component which could allow a remote attacker to bypass security
restrictions. An attacker
could exploit this vulnerability to bypass the secure processing feature
to load arbitrary restricted classes.

Vulnerability Details

CVE ID: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-0107
DESCRIPTION: The TransformerFactory in Apache Xalan-Java before
2.7.2 does not properly restrict access to certain properties when
FEATURE_SECURE_PROCESSING is enabled, which allows remote attackers to
bypass expected restrictions and load arbitrary classes or access external
resources via a crafted (1) xalan:content-header, (2) xalan:entities,
(3) xslt:content-header, or (4) xslt:entities property, or a Java property
that is bound to the XSLT 1.0 system-property function.
