New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

The remote web server contains a Java application that is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.

Description

The version of Apache Druid running on the remote web server is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability in the bundled Apache Log4j logging library. Apache Log4j is vulnerable due to insufficient protections on message lookup substitutions when dealing with user controlled input. A remote, unauthenticated attacker can exploit this, via a web request, to execute arbitrary code with the permission level of the running Java process.

This plugin requires that both the scanner and target machine have internet access.

Solution

Upgrade to Apache Druid version 0.22.1 or later.
