CVE-2009-2625 OpenJDK: XML parsing Denial-Of-Service (6845701)
A flaw was found in the way the Apache Xerces2 Java Parser processed
the SYSTEM identifier in DTDs. A remote attacker could provide a
specially crafted XML file, which once parsed by an application using
the Apache Xerces2 Java Parser, would lead to a denial of service
(application hang due to excessive CPU use). (CVE-2009-2625)
Applications using the Apache Xerces2 Java Parser must be restarted
for this update to take effect.
