MITIGATION

Blue Coat's ProxySG appliance running SGOS 6.6.4 or a later release can protect customer networks against attacks using all CVEs, except CVE-2016-1834, CVE-2016-1840, CVE-2016-3627, and CVE-2016-4448. ProxySG deployed as a reverse proxy can protect network hosts behind it by blocking the malformed XML payload used in these attacks. Customers can use the following CPL syntax introduced in SGOS 6.6.4:

<proxy>
http.request.detection.xml.invalid(block)
