VMware Spring Cloud Config 2.1 < 2.1.9 / 2.2 < 2.2.3 Directory Traversal

high Nessus Plugin ID 163632

Synopsis

Spring Cloud Config running on the remote host is affected by a directory traversal vulnerability.

Description

The version of Spring Cloud Config running on the remote host is affected by a directory traversal vulnerability.
Spring Cloud Config, versions 2.2.x prior to 2.2.3, versions 2.1.x prior to 2.1.9, and older unsupported versions allow applications to serve arbitrary configuration files through the spring-cloud-config-server module. A malicious user, or attacker, can send a request using a specially crafted URL that can lead to a directory traversal attack.

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

Solution

Upgrade to Spring Cloud Config version 2.1.9, 2.2.3, or later.
