Background ========== Xalan-Java is an XSLT processor for transforming XML documents into HTML, text, or other XML document types. Affected packages ================= ------------------------------------------------------------------- Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected ------------------------------------------------------------------- 1 dev-java/xalan < 2.7.2 >= 2.7.2 Description =========== The TransformerFactory in Apache Xalan-Java does not properly restrict access to certain properties when FEATURE_SECURE_PROCESSING is enabled. This can also be exploited via a Java property that is bound to the XSLT 1.0 system-property function. Impact ====== A remote attacker could inject specially crafted XSLT properties resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the process. Workaround ========== There is no known work around at this time. Resolution ========== All Xalan-Java users should upgrade to the latest version: # emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-java/xalan-2.7.2" References ========== [ 1 ] CVE-2014-0107 http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2014-0107 Availability ============ This GLSA and any updates to it are available for viewing at the Gentoo Security Website: https://security.gentoo.org/glsa/201604-02 Concerns? ========= Security is a primary focus of Gentoo Linux and ensuring the confidentiality and security of our users' machines is of utmost importance to us.
