XEE possible in mahara
There is a security issue with the default XML parser for PHP, where ENTITY fields are
loaded and substituted in text parts.
This allows possible attackers to read from internal networks, or files readable by the
web server user.
This includes reading of the config.php file, which contains sensitive information such
as the database password, and the password salt field.
The fix for this was to include a call to libxml_
initialization of a page.
