Apache Solr < 4.6.0 SolrResourceLoader Directory Traversal

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


Synopsis :

The remote web server contains a Java application that is affected by a
directory traversal vulnerability.

Description :

The version of Apache Solr hosted on the remote web server is affected
by a directory traversal vulnerability because the 'SolrResourceLoader'
class fails to restrict access to the loading of specially crafted XLS
stylesheets or velocity templates. A remote, unauthenticated attacker
could exploit this issue by crafting a URL with directory traversal
characters to access resources outside of the instance directory.
