It was discovered by the Spring development team that the fix for the XML External Entity (XXE) Injection (CVE-2013-4152) in the Spring Framework was incomplete.
Spring MVC's SourceHttpMessageConverter also processed user provided XML and neither disabled XML external entities nor provided an option to disable them. SourceHttpMessageConverter has been modified to provide an option to control the processing of XML external entities and that processing is now disabled by default.
For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 3.0.6.RELEASE-6+deb7u2.
For the testing distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 3.0.6.RELEASE-11.
For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 3.0.6.RELEASE-11.
We recommend that you upgrade your libspring-java packages.
