Oracle GlassFish Server Administrative Console Authentication Bypass

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote web server has an authentication bypass vulnerability.

Description :

The version of GlassFish Server running on the remote host has an
authentication bypass vulnerability. The server treats specially
crafted TRACE requests as if they are authenticated GET requests.

A remote, unauthenticated attacker could exploit this to bypass
authentication and gain administrative access to the affected
application. In turn, this could be leveraged to run commands under
the context of the GlassFish server, which is root by default.
