Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2013:0613 0 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Important: JBoss Enterprise Portal Platform 5.2.2 security update 2013-03-08 00:07:17 UTC

Description David Jorm 2013-02-21 02:23:18 UTC
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.
