Vulnerability Insight:
It was discovered that there was an XML external entity vulnerability
in log4net, a logging API for the ECMA Common Language Infrastructure

parser. This attack may lead to the disclosure of confidential data,
denial of service, server side request forgery as well as other
system impacts.

Affected Software/OS:
'log4net' package(s) on Debian Linux.

Solution:
For Debian 8 'Jessie', this issue has been fixed in log4net version

We recommend that you upgrade your log4net packages.
