A potential XML External Entity (XXE) vulnerability has been identified in components used in API Manager.


An XML External Entity (XXE) attack abuses a widely available but rarely used feature of XML parsers to access sensitive information.


The resolution of external entity references is enabled. Therefore, if attacker-controlled XML is submitted to the XML parser, then the attacker could gain access to information about an internal network, local filesystem, or other sensitive data.


If you are using an affected product version, it is highly recommended to migrate to the latest released version to receive security fixes.
