Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201604-02 (Xalan-Java: Arbitrary code execution)

The TransformerFactory in Apache Xalan-Java does not properly restrict       access to certain properties when FEATURE_SECURE_PROCESSING is enabled.
  This can also be exploited via a Java property that is bound to the XSLT       1.0 system-property function.

Impact :

A remote attacker could inject specially crafted XSLT properties       resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the       process.

Workaround :

There is no known work around at this time.
