A remote web application is vulnerable to several flaws.
Detects Vulnerability in the execution of JSPs outside doc_root.
A potential security vulnerability has been discovered in Oracle JSP
releases 1.0.x through 1.1.1 (in Apache/Jserv). This vulnerability
permits access to and execution of unintended JSP files outside the
doc_root in Apache/Jserv. For example, accessing
will execute b.jsp outside the doc_root instead of a.jsp if there is a
b.jsp file in the matching directory.
Further, Jserv Releases 1.0.x - 1.0.2 have additional vulnerability:
Due to a bug in Apache/Jserv path translation, any URL that looks like:
http://host:port/servlets/a.jsp, makes Oracle JSP execute
'd:\servlets\a.jsp' if such a directory path actually exists. Thus, a
URL virtual path, an actual directory path and the Oracle JSP name
(when using Oracle Apache/JServ) must match for this potential
vulnerability to occur.
