> As part of the changes introduced in [1.19 |https://github.com/apache/tika/commit/4e67928412ad56333d400f3728ecdb59d07d9d63] determineMaxEntityExpansions needs to read the jdk.xml.entityExpansionLimit System Property in order to overwrite the default value of 20, if it is set.
> This is however by reading all System Properties with System.getProperties() and attempting to find the relevant key in the properties Object. The issue with this approach is that getProperties() requires
> {noformat}java.util.PropertyPermission "*", "read,write"{noformat}
> which is overly permissive.
> A more sane approach, following the least privilege design principal would be to use System.getProperty() for the specific property that only requires
> {noformat}java.util.PropertyPermission "jdk.xml.entityExpansionLimit", "read"{noformat}
