Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-6810) Add regression tests for XXE vulnerability
Date Mon, 25 May 2015 21:17:17 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6810?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14558532#comment-14558532
] 

Bryan Pendleton commented on DERBY-6810:
----------------------------------------

I agree; that is how it seems to me, too. I think this means
that, while Derby may be vulnerable to other variants of the XXE
attack, perhaps Derby is not vulnerable to the Billion Laughs attack.

> We should add some regression tests demonstrating that
> Derby is no longer vulnerable to an XXE assault.
> One possibility would be to have a example using a local
> file disclosure.
> Another possibility would be to have example based on the
> well-known "Billion Laughs" denial of service attack.
