SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionMario Areias discovered that dom4j, a XML framework for Java, was vulnerable to a XML injection attack. An attacker able to specify attributes or elements in the XML document might be able to modify the whole XML document.
For Debian 8 'Jessie', this problem has been fixed in version 1.6.1+dfsg.3-2+deb8u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your dom4j packages.
NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpgrade the affected libdom4j-java, and libdom4j-java-doc packages.
