$Apache Axis2 xsd local file inclusion

Description

Apache Axis2 contains a flaw that may allow a remote attacker to access arbitrary files. A remote attacker could send a specially-crafted URL request using the xsd parameter to specify a malicious file from the local system, which could allow the attacker to obtain sensitive information or execute arbitrary code on the vulnerable Web server.

Remediation

Upgrade to the latest version of Apache Axis2. This issue was fixed in Apache Axis2 version 1.4.1.
