SynopsisThe remote web server hosts a Java application that is vulnerable.
DescriptionKibana versions 4.0 to 4.6, 5.0 to 5.6.12, and 6.0 to 6.4.2 contain an
error in the way authorization credentials are used when generating
PDF reports. If a report requests external resources plaintext
credentials are included in the HTTP request that could be recovered
by an external resource provider.
SolutionUsers should upgrade to Elastic Stack version 5.6.13 or 6.4.3. Users
unable to upgrade can disable the Reporting feature in Kibana by
setting xpack.reporting.enabled to false in the kibana.yml file. This
does not prevent previously leaked credentials from being reused.For
