Description

Nicolas Gregoire discovered that Xalan-Java incorrectly handled certain properties when the secure processing feature was enabled. An attacker could possibly use this issue to load arbitrary classes or access external resources.

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