From secunia security advisory at $URL:

The vulnerability is caused due to an error within libraries/import/xml.php when processing XML data, which can be exploited to e.g. disclose contents of certain local files and perform certain actions on the local network by sending specially crafted XML data including external entity references.

The vulnerability is confirmed in version 3.4.7. Other versions may also be affected.

Not patched atm. (Restrict access to trusted users only)
