SysAid Server < 23.3.36 Path Traversal

critical Nessus Plugin ID 185896


The inventory management server on the remote Windows host is affected by a path traversal vulnerability.


The version of SysAid Server installed on the remote host is prior to 23.3.36. It is, therefore, affected by a path traversal vulnerability that leads to code execution after an attacker writes a file to the Tomcat webroot.
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to SysAid Server 23.3.36 or later.
