Security Advisory

A new version of Apache Camel was released to address XXE vulnerability in c3p0 JDBC3 connector.

1) XML External Entity injection


The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to gain access to sensitive information.

The vulnerability exists due to insufficient validation of user-supplied XML input within the extractXmlConfigFromInputStream() method in com/mchange/v2/c3p0/cfg/C3P0ConfigXmlUtils.java file during initialization. A remote attacker can pass a specially crafted XML code to the affected application and view contents of arbitrary files on the system or initiate requests to external systems.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerability may allow an attacker to view contents of arbitrary file on the server or perform network scanning of internal and external infrastructure.


Update to the latest version.
