It has identified that Management Console is vulnarable to a XXE attack when adding and updating a Lifecycle.


In event-receiver component, secure processing feature has not been enabled for XML parsers to prevent XXE attacks.


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.

You may also apply the relevant fixes based on the changes from the public fix:  https://github.com/wso2/carbon-governance/pull/338
