<p>Xalan-Java is an XSLT processor for transforming XML documents into
HTML, text, or other XML document types.
<p>The TransformerFactory in Apache Xalan-Java does not properly restrict
access to certain properties when FEATURE_SECURE_PROCESSING is enabled.
This can also be exploited via a Java property that is bound to the XSLT
