Echo2 XML information disclosure
|echo2-xml-information-disclosure (49167)||Low Risk|
Echo2 could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by the improper verification of XML data passed to the Echo Engine. By sending a specially-crafted HTTP POST request, a remote attacker could inject arbitrary XML declarations to create a new XML entity containing restricted content. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to view the arbitrary XML file and obtain sensitive information.
