Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher Multiple Vulnerabilities (October 2018 CPU)
High Nessus Plugin ID 120948
SynopsisThe remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe version of Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher running on the remote host is 18.104.22.168.x prior to 22.214.171.124.181016, 126.96.36.199.x prior to 188.8.131.52.181016, 184.108.40.206.x prior to 220.127.116.11.181016, or 18.104.22.168.x prior to 22.214.171.124.181016. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as noted in the October 2018 Critical Patch Update advisory:
- A deserialization vulnerability exists in Apache Log4j 2.x before 2.8.2. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted binary, to execute arbitrary code on the target host (CVE-2017-5645).
- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in Analytics Server, Oracle BI Publisher.Supported version affected is 126.96.36.199.0 An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via HTTP, to disclose potentially sensitive information. Successful attacks require human interaction from a person other than the attacker and while the vulnerability is in Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition, attacks may significantly impact additional products (CVE-2018-3204).
- A deserialization vulnerability exists in Apache Batik 1.x before 1.10 due to subclass of `AbstractDocument`.
An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via deserializing subclass of `AbstractDocument`, to execute arbitrary code on the target host (CVE-2018-8013).
Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
