    Details

      Description

      The tests used to test maven-checkstyle are using old DTDs and unsecure "http" locations. This is related to CVE-2019-9658. The security issue is in the parser that is used to parse this file. It leaves any code that parses this file vulnerable to XXE via a MITM.

       

      All doctypes used in maven-checkstyle repo (configurations, suppressions, import controls, etc...) should be updated to use the latest URL and public DOCTYPEs.

      Example:
      ````

      <!DOCTYPE module PUBLIC
                "-//Checkstyle//DTD Checkstyle Configuration 1.3//EN"
      "https://checkstyle.org/dtds/configuration_1_3.dtd">

      ````
