This security release resolves some XSS and an XML vulnerability in the Framework.
If your code relies on
Convert::xml2array there are some important things to consider with regards to
certain vulnerabilities. In this release additional options have been added to this method to assist
users in guarding against these risks, although each option has been turned off by default.
Please refer to http://phpsecurity.readthedocs.org/en/latest/Injection-Attacks.html#xml-external-entity-injection on details of some of the specific reasons behind the need for these changes and how you can guard against them in your code.
Specifically this method has these two new parameters:
$disableDoctypesparameter has been added to disallow parsing of XML content containing a <!DOCTYPE > header, which may potentially contain unguarded or recursive entity definitions.
$disableExternalsparameter allows XML parsing to ignore any externally referenced dependency within the file, ensuring that injected XML is unable to invoke data from potentially hazardous sources.
