    Package        : jackrabbit
    CVE ID         : CVE-2015-1833
    
    It was discovered that the Jackrabbit WebDAV bundle was susceptible to a
    XXE/XEE attack. When processing a WebDAV request body containing XML,
    the XML parser could 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 could 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 the oldstable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed
    in version 2.3.6-1+deb7u1.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.3.6-1+deb8u1.
    
    For the testing distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed
    in version 2.10.1-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.10.1-1.
