Medium Nessus Plugin ID 128548


A web application running on the remote host is affected by a local file disclosure vulnerability


According to its self-reported version number, the Atlassian Confluence application running on the remote host is 6.1.x prior to 6.6.16, 6.7.x prior to 6.13.7, 6.14.x prior to 6.15.8. It is, therefore, affected by a local file disclosure vulnerability which exists in page export component. An authenticated, remote attacker with AddPage space permission can exploit this to read arbitrary files in the <install-directory>/confluence/WEB-INF directory.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
