[jira] Resolved: (DERBY-2131) External DTD files are accessed without a privileged block when Derby parses XML values that reference such DTDs. A B (JIRA) Thu Nov 30 18:08:54 2006

     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-2131?page=all ]

A B resolved DERBY-2131.
------------------------

    Resolution: Fixed
    Derby Info:   (was: [Patch Available])

derbyall and suites.All both ran without errors and there were no objections to 
the posted patch, so I committed d2131_v1.patch with svn 481117.

> The Derby XMLPARSE operator ultimately makes a call to an external JAXP 
> parser (ex. Xerces or Crimson) to parse an XML value.  If the XML value that 
> is being parsed references an external DTD, then the JAXP parser will need to 
> read the DTD file to complete parsing.  However, the current code in 
> SqlXmlUtil.java does not use a privileged block when it calls out to the JAXP 
> parser.  As a result, when a user who is running with a security manager 
> tries to insert a document that references an external DTD, the call to 
> XMLPARSE will fail with a security exception--even if the JAXP parser has the 
> required "read" permissions.
