Synopsis

An application installed on the remote host is affected by a XML external entity injection vulnerability.

Description

The version of Oracle JDeveloper installed on the remote host is prior to 12.2.1.4.0. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the July 2021 CPU advisory:

- Vulnerability in the Essbase product of Oracle Essbase (component: Infrastructure (Apache Commons Compress)). The supported version that is affected is 21.2. Easily exploitable vulnerability allows low privileged attacker with access to the physical communication segment attached to the hardware where the Essbase executes to compromise Essbase. Successful attacks require human interaction from a person other than the attacker. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in unauthorized update, insert or delete access to some of Essbase accessible data and unauthorized ability to cause a partial denial of service (partial DOS) of Essbase. (CVE-2019-12402)

- Vulnerability in the Oracle JDeveloper and ADF product of Oracle Fusion Middleware (component: OAM (Apache POI)). The supported version that is affected is 12.2.1.4.0. Easily exploitable vulnerability allows low privileged attacker with logon to the infrastructure where Oracle JDeveloper and ADF executes to compromise Oracle JDeveloper and ADF. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in unauthorized access to critical data or complete access to all Oracle JDeveloper and ADF accessible data. (CVE-2019-12415)

- Vulnerability in the Enterprise Manager Base Platform product of Oracle Enterprise Manager (component: Application Service Level Mgmt (dom4j)). The supported version that is affected is 13.4.0.0. Easily exploitable vulnerability allows unauthenticated attacker with network access via HTTP to compromise Enterprise Manager Base Platform. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in takeover of Enterprise Manager Base Platform. (CVE-2020-10683)

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