Kibana ESA-2019-01, ESA-2019-02, ESA-2019-03

critical Nessus Plugin ID 122589

Synopsis

The remote web server hosts a Java application that is vulnerable.

Description

Kibana versions before 5.6.15 and 6.6.1 have the following vulnerabilities:

- A cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability that could allow an attacker to obtain sensitive information from or perform destructive actions on behalf of other Kibana users. (CVE-2019-7608)

- An arbitrary code execution flaw in the Timelion visualizer. An attacker with access to the Timelion application could send a request that will attempt to execute javascript code. This could possibly lead to an attacker executing arbitrary commands with permissions of the Kibana process on the host system. (CVE-2019-7609)

- An arbitrary code execution flaw in the security audit logger. If a Kibana instance has the setting xpack.security.audit.enabled set to true, an attacker could send a request that will attempt to execute javascript code. This could possibly lead to an attacker executing arbitrary commands with permissions of the Kibana process on the host system. (CVE-2019-7610)

Solution

Users should upgrade to Kibana version 5.6.15 or 6.6.1
