Description Andrej Nemec 2017-10-05 07:52:44 UTC
This vulnerability affects the SimpleXMLProvider in Restlet. The affected code allows a remote attacker to potentially access arbitrary files on the system by sending a request with maliciously crafted XML data to a REST API built with Restlet. If you use a combination of both Restlet and Simple XML then your application is very likely affected.
