Description Laura Pardo 2018-05-16 11:00:39 EDT
Spring Data Commons, versions 1.13 prior to 1.13.12 and 2.0 prior to 2.0.7, used in combination with XMLBeam 1.4.14 or earlier versions, contains a property binder vulnerability caused by improper restriction of XML external entity references as underlying library XMLBeam does not restrict external reference expansion. An unauthenticated remote malicious user can supply specially crafted request parameters against Spring Data's projection-based request payload binding to access arbitrary files on the system.

Created springframework-data-commons tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1578939]
Comment 3 Jason Shepherd 2018-05-21 03:17:22 EDT
Spring Data Commons is used by the Millicore component of RHMAP which does not make use of XMLBeam. Marking RHMAP as not affected.
Comment 4 claprun@redhat.com 2018-06-01 04:44:44 EDT
Shouldn't this be marked as high as that's how it's marked by Pivotal on its CVE?
