   Re: [xml-dev] XInclude: security risk 1

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

On reflection, I think XInclude's security issues are really just a
subset of those that browsers have with XSLT, or at least are solvable
in the same way.  XSLT allows you to fetch data from a local file
using document("file:///whatever") and even allows you to pass out
that information as part of a URL in another document() call.

I checked what Mozilla does in this case, and it appears to refuse
to fetch a file: URL from a document() call in a remote stylesheet.
