Description

Timothy D. Morgan discovered that Raptor would unconditionally load XML
external entities. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted
document in an application linked against Raptor, an attacker could
possibly obtain access to arbitrary files on the user's system or
potentially execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking
the program.
