Debian DLA-1046-1 : lucene-solr security update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 102044

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: 3.6


The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


lucene-solr handler supports an HTTP API (/replication?command=filecontent&file=<file_name>) which is vulnerable to path traversal attack. Specifically, this API does not perform any validation of the user specified file_name parameter. This can allow an attacker to download any file readable to Solr server process even if it is not related to the actual Solr index state.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', this problem has been fixed in version 3.6.0+dfsg-1+deb7u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your lucene-solr packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Upgrade the affected packages.
