Oracle WebLogic Server RCE (CVE-2020-14882)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 142594
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.


An application server installed on the remote host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.


The version of Oracle WebLogic Server installed on the remote host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Console subcomponent. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted HTTP request, to execute arbitrary commands.

No reliable remote exploit has been published for Oracle WebLogic Server 10.3.6.X or 12.1.3.X, so Nessus will not be able to determine if the remote server is affected or not for these versions.


Apply the appropriate patch according to the October 2020 Oracle Critical Patch Update advisory and the Oracle Security Alert advisory for CVE-2020-14750.
