Fortinet FortiOS SSL VPN Directory Traversal Vulnerability (FG-IR-18-384) (Direct Check)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 128552
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote host is affected by a directory traversal vulnerability.

Description

The remote host is running a version of FortiOS 5.6.3 prior to 5.6.8 or 6.0.x prior to 6.0.5. It is, therefore, affected by a directory traversal vulnerability in the SSL VPN web portal, due to improper sanitization of path traversal characters in URLs. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted HTTP request, to download arbitrary FortiOS system files.

Solution

Upgrade to Fortinet FortiOS version to 5.6.8, 6.0.5, 6.2.0 or later.
