Subject [jira] [Commented] (TIKA-2829) Security Vulnerability in boilerpipe (CVE-2018-16481)
Date Tue, 19 Feb 2019 17:31:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-2829?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16772142#comment-16772142

Tim Allison commented on TIKA-2829:

Are you able to submit a unit test that shows this vulnerability in action in the Tika framework...ideally
via a patch to private@tika.apache.org  

Would this vulnerability be triggered by users who take the output of Tika and display it
in a browser?

Thank you!
