Description
com.sun.org.apache.xml.internal.security.utils.IdResolver is not thread-safe. It uses an unsynchronized WeakHashMap to store id/element mappings. Multiple threads running in parallel that use this class to register and retrieve id mappings can exhibit erratic behavior.

Comments
EVALUATION Yes, this is a bug and it has no workaround.
