             Summary: Remove XML external entity issue in RestoreZooKeeper
                 Key: ACCUMULO-4534
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-4534
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Josh Elser
            Assignee: Josh Elser
             Fix For: 1.7.3, 1.8.1, 2.0.0


There appears to be an issue in RestoreZooKeeper in which the tool may, with specially crafted
XML, load external files on the system. I'm not going the normal vulnerability route with
this because the command is executed by a user on an XML file they provide (so, the vector
is that you attacked yourself out of ignorance).

However, it would still be good to remove this as a possibility since it's very simple. This
was found by a static analysis tool.

For more info, https://www.owasp.org/index.php/XML_External_Entity_(XXE)_Prevention_Cheat_Sheet
is a good writeup.
