Debian DLA-1254-1 : lucene-solr security update
High Nessus Plugin ID 106210
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionMichael Stepankin and Olga Barinova discovered a remote code execution vulnerability in Apache Solr by exploiting XML External Entity processing (XXE) in conjunction with use of a Config API add-listener command to reach the RunExecutableListener class. To resolve this issue the RunExecutableListener class has been removed and resolving of external entities in the CoreParser class disallowed.
For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 3.6.0+dfsg-1+deb7u3.
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.
