Joomla! < 3.8.12 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 112160

Synopsis

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

According to its self-reported version number, the Joomla! installation running on the remote web server is prior to 3.8.12. It is, therefore, affected by malicious file upload and stored cross-site scripting vulnerabilities. Additionally, versions 3.7.0 through 3.8.11 are affected by an access control list violation vulnerability.

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

Solution

Upgrade to Joomla! version 3.8.12 or later.
