CVE-2016-9487

Priority
Description
EpubCheck 4.0.1 does not properly restrict resolving external entities when
parsing XML in EPUB files during validation. An attacker who supplies a
specially crafted EPUB file may be able to exploit this behavior to read
arbitrary files, or have the victim execute arbitrary requests on his
behalf, abusing the victim's trust relationship with other entities.
