ForgeRock Access Management < 7.0 RCE

critical Nessus Plugin ID 151291


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.


ForgeRock Access Management is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.


The version of ForgeRock Access Management detected on the remote host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability due to unsafe object deserialization. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to execute code on the remote host.

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


Upgrade to ForgeRock Access Management version 7.0 or later, or apply a workaround.
