    Updated log4net packages fix security vulnerability
    This patch fixes a security vulnerabiliy reported by Karthik
    Balasundaram. The security vulnerability was found in the way
    how log4net parses xml configuration files where it allowed to
    process XML External Entity Processing. An attacker could use 
    this as an attack vector if he could modify the XML configuration file.
