Oracle JDeveloper XSS (October 2020 CPU)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 142146
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

An application installed on the remote host is affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability.

Description

The version of Oracle JDeveloper installed on the remote host is missing a security patch. It is, therefore, affected by a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in the ADF Faces (jQuery) component. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this issue to compromise Oracle JDeveloper. Successful attacks require human interaction from a person other than the attacker and while the vulnerability is in Oracle JDeveloper, attacks may significantly impact additional products. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in unauthorized update, insert or delete access to some of Oracle JDeveloper accessible data as well as unauthorized read access to a subset of Oracle JDeveloper accessible data.

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

Solution

Apply the appropriate patch according to the October 2020 Oracle Critical Patch Update advisory.
