TIBCO JasperReports Library 6.x < 6.3.5 / 6.4.1 / 6.4.2 / 6.4.21 / 7.1.0 / 7.2.0 Directory Traversal (CVE-2018-18809)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 171214


A Java reporting engine library is affected by a directory traversal vulnerability.


According to its self-reported version, the TIBCO JasperReports Library on the remote host is 6.x < 6.3.5, 6.4.1, 6.4.2, 6.4.21, 7.1.0, or 7.2.0. It is, therefore, affected by a directory traversal vulnerability in the default server implementation that can allow web server users to access contents of the host system.

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


Upgrade to TIBCO JasperReports Library 6.3.5, 6.4.22, 7.1.1, or 7.2.1 or later.
