Oracle Primavera Gateway Multiple Vulnerabilities (July 2017 CPU)

High Nessus Plugin ID 101899

New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 6.5


An application running on the remote web server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


According to its self-reported version number, the Oracle Primavera Gateway installation running on the remote web server is prior to 14.2.3, 15.x prior to 15.2.12, or 16.x prior to 16.2.4. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the Primavera Integration (Standard) component, specifically in Apache Standard Taglib, due to an XML external entity (XXE) injection flaw when parsing XML data because of an incorrectly configured XML parser accepting XML external entities from untrusted sources. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via specially crafted XML data, to disclose resources on the target system or utilize XSLT extensions to execute arbitrary code.

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the Primavera Integration (Groovy) component due to unsafe deserialize calls of unauthenticated Java objects to the Apache Commons Collections (ACC) library. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code on the target host.

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to Oracle Primavera Gateway version 14.2.3 / 15.2.12 / 16.2.4 or later.
