XXE vulnerability where a user with admin console access can use the XML validator to make unintended network invocations.
A potential XXE has been identified in the XML validator. Due to this issue a user with admin console access can use the XML validator to make unintended network invocations via a file upload.
The XXE attacks can affect any trusted system respective to the machine where the parser is located. This attack may result in disclosing local files, denial of service, server-side request forgery, port scanning and other system impacts on affected systems.
If you are using an affected product version, it is highly recommended to migrate to the latest released version to receive security fixes.
