Apache Camel is a versatile open-source integration framework based on
known Enterprise Integration Patterns.

A flaw was found in Apache Camel's parsing of the FILE_NAME header.
A remote attacker able to submit messages to a Camel route, which would
write the provided message to a file, could provide expression language
(EL) expressions in the FILE_NAME header that would be evaluated on the
server. This could lead to arbitrary remote code execution in the context
of the Camel server process. (CVE-2013-4330)
