Hi, the following vulnerability was published for batik. CVE-2017-5662: | In Apache Batik before 1.9, files lying on the filesystem of the | server which uses batik can be revealed to arbitrary users who send | maliciously formed SVG files. The file types that can be shown depend | on the user context in which the exploitable application is running. | If the user is root a full compromise of the server - including | confidential or sensitive files - would be possible. XXE can also be | used to attack the availability of the server via denial of service as | the references within a xml document can trivially trigger an | amplification attack. The issue was annonced in , but at the time of writing this bugreport I have no upstream reference apart . If you fix the vulnerability please also make sure to include the CVE (Common Vulnerabilities & Exposures) id in your changelog entry.
