Description

Nicolas Gregoire and Kevin Schaller discovered that Batik, a toolkit for processing SVG images, would load XML external entities by default. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a specially crafted SVG file, an attacker could possibly obtain access to arbitrary files or cause resource consumption.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
