Description David Jorm 2013-02-20 21:23:18 EST
The GateIn Portal Export / Import Gadget is vulnerable to XXE (XML eXternal Entity) attacks. If the XML provided to the import gadget contains an external XML entity, this XML entity will be resolved. A remote attacker who can access the import gadget could use this flaw to read files in the context of the user running the application server.
