Is this a duplicate of CVE-2016-3720?

Good questions. Resetting NEEDINFO to amaris@redhat.com, he assigned CVE-2016-7051 in response to jsheppard@redhat.com, I've looked at the bugs but it's a bit convoluted. I've also emailed them to ensure they see this.

Comment 7 Jason Shepherd 2017-01-03 00:57:23 UTC
These 2 issues are distinct. The first issues was about XXE, and was fixed with the change in line 115 here:


The second issue was about DTD, and was fixed with the change in line 117.

Thanks for the clarification.
