    • Last commented by a User:


      If DTD is not entirely disabled, inline DTD declarations can be used to perform Denial of Service attacks known as XML bombs. Such declarations are both well-formed and valid according to XML schema rules but when parsed can cause out of memory errors. To protect against this kind of attack DTD support must be disabled by setting the disallow-doctype-dec feature in the DOM and SAX APIs to true and by setting the supportDTD property in the StAX API to false.
