Thanks for these attack vectors, they are really helpful. ##
@staaldraad am just a newbie in this stuff so please, i need some clarification. I suppose that OOB extra ERROR --Java is meant to produce an error so as to get to know the inner working of the application and the File-not-found exception based extraction code is doing the same. Please help correct me or with a better explanation for those codes. Have you discovered some new XXE attack vectors which are totally different from what is here --> http://web-in-security.blogspot.it/2016/03/xxe-cheat-sheet.html .

Hi, sorry for the delay. Turns out I don't get notifications on gist comments, or I missed it somehow.
These are largely a collection of different payloads I've used on assessments. Some I found for myself, while others I've picked up from blog-posts. I'm sure there is a big overlap with the link you posted, and there are some awesome payloads in there that I haven't tried, thanks!
With the OOB error based, I copied that from the work done by NetSPi : https://blog.netspi.com/forcing-xxe-reflection-server-error-messages/
They explain the mechanics really well 👍
