The remote web server has an authentication bypass vulnerability.
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.
See also :
Upgrade to GlassFish Server 3.1 or later, or disable TRACE (refer to
the Core Security advisory for more information).
Risk factor :
Critical / CVSS Base Score : 10.0
