When RIB is processing the messages which contains special characters (<,>,&,",'), they are failing with below errors:


Steps To Reprouce:

1. Try publishing any XML message to RIB whose description or any other data field contains special characters. (Example: Vamshi Krishna & Co..)
2. If the same kind of message is created from Retail Applications (like RMS), they are processing fine.
3. Issue is with the messages being published from external systems or directly onto RIB topics using RDMT or any other tools.
4. RIB fails to parse them and messages were getting logged into error hospital.
