Advantech WebAccess < 8.2_20170817 Multiple Vulnerabilities

critical Nessus Plugin ID 103048
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote host has a web application running that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The Advantech WebAccess application running on the remote host is prior to version 8.2.2017.08.17. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities including SQL Injection, Out-of-Bounds Access, Multiple Buffer Overflows, Externally Controlled Format String, Improper Authentication, Incorrect Permission Assignment for Critical Resource, Incorrect Privilege Assignment, and Uncontrolled Search Path Element.

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


Upgrade to Advantech WebAccess version V8.2_20170817 or later.
