Apache APISIX Dashboard 2.6 < 2.6.1 Authentication Bypass

medium Nessus Plugin ID 161978

Synopsis

An application installed on the remote host is missing a vendor-supplied update.

Description

The version of Apache APISIX Dashboard installed on the remote host is 2.6 prior to 2.6.1. It is, therefore, affected by an authentication bypass vulnerability. In Apache APISIX Dashboard version 2.6, we changed the default value of listen host to 0.0.0.0 in order to facilitate users to configure external network access. In the IP allowed list restriction, a risky function was used for the IP acquisition, which made it possible to bypass the network limit. At the same time, the default account and password are fixed. Ultimately these factors lead to the issue of security risks. This issue is fixed in APISIX Dashboard 2.6.1.

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

Solution

Upgrade to Apache APISIX Dashboard version 2.6.1 or later.
