the transitive dependency dom4j 1.6.1 has a CVE, which is used by hibernate core (see http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2018-1000632).
I noticed that the version is very old (year 2006). Why is not the latest org.dom4j 2.x.x used?
The newest version 2.1.1 has this CVE too, but i hope in the next version it will be fixed.
Thanks and cheers
EDIT: The dom4j 2.1.1 fixed this issue
