In Apache Batik before 1.9, files lying on the filesystem of the server
which uses batik can be revealed to arbitrary users who send maliciously
formed SVG files. The file types that can be shown depend on the user
context in which the exploitable application is running. If the user is
root a full compromise of the server - including confidential or sensitive
files - would be possible. XXE can also be used to attack the availability
of the server via denial of service as the references within a xml document
can trivially trigger an amplification attack.
