 Apache Jackrabbit 2.6.6 is a patch release that contains fixes and
 improvements over Jackrabbit 2.6. This release also contains a security fix
-for Jackrabbit 2.6.2 and earlier. Jackrabbit 2.6.x releases are considered
+for Jackrabbit 2.6.5 and earlier. Jackrabbit 2.6.x releases are considered
 stable and targeted for production use.
 
+Security advisory (JCR-3883 / CVE-2015-1833)
+--------------------------------------------
+
+This release fixes an important security issue in the jackrabbit-webdav module
+reported by Mikhail Egorov.
+
+When processing a WebDAV request body containing XML, the XML parser can be 
+instructed to read content from network resources accessible to the host, 
+identified by URI schemes such as "http(s)" or  "file". Depending on the 
+WebDAV request, this can not only be used to trigger internal network 
+requests, but might also be used to insert said content into the request, 
+potentially exposing it to the attacker and others (for instance, by inserting
+said content in a WebDAV property value using a PROPPATCH request). See also
+IETF RFC 4918, Section 20.6.
+
+Users of the jackrabbit-webdav module are advised to immediately update the
+module to this release or disable WebDAV access to the repository.
