  • Based on this downloads page, is it fair to assume that you're using a framework from 2006? – Neil Smithline Sep 19 '15 at 22:31
  • Yes, the framework is too old and there are lesser chances of upgrade. – Imran Oct 4 '15 at 6:40

I ended up creating a servlet filter which would check the size of input as well as parse through the input to block any other type of XML attack.
