Description Vasyl Kaigorodov 2015-05-21 15:32:00 UTC
Version 2.10.1 of Apache Jackrabbit fixes XXE/XEE issue in the jackrabbit-webdav module.
Part of original advisory:
When processing a WebDAV request body containing XML, the XML parser can be
instructed to read content from network resources accessible to the host,
identified by URI schemes such as "http(s)" or  "file". Depending on the
WebDAV request, this can not only be used to trigger internal network
requests, but might also be used to insert said content into the request,
potentially exposing it to the attacker and others (for instance, by inserting
said content in a WebDAV property value using a PROPPATCH request). See also
IETF RFC 4918, Section 20.6.

Comment 1 Vasyl Kaigorodov 2015-05-21 15:34:12 UTC
Created jackrabbit tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1223885]

Comment 2 Jason Shepherd 2015-07-09 00:17:34 UTC
Camel doesn't have a webdav server. It has some webdav client libraries, such as commons-vfs, and camel-hadoop, but not a server.

Comment 3 Jason Shepherd 2015-07-09 00:34:51 UTC
Jackrabbit is not shipped in Fuse Service Works.

Comment 4 Jason Shepherd 2015-07-09 00:46:06 UTC
jackrabbit-webdav package removed in Fedora 22

Comment 5 Jason Shepherd 2015-07-29 01:28:30 UTC
None of our middleware product suite host a WebDav Server using Jackrabbit. Closing as NOTABUG
