IBM Engineering Requirements Management DOORS 9.7.2.x < Multiple Vulnerabilities (7124058)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 191754


The remote host is missing one or more security updates.


The version of IBM Engineering Requirements Management DOORS (formerly IBM Rational DOORS) installed on the remote host is 9.7.2.x prior to It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the 7124058 advisory.

- Apache Shiro before 1.9.1, A RegexRequestMatcher can be misconfigured to be bypassed on some servlet containers. Applications using RegExPatternMatcher with `.` in the regular expression are possibly vulnerable to an authorization bypass. (CVE-2022-32532)

- The Java OpenWire protocol marshaller is vulnerable to Remote Code Execution. This vulnerability may allow a remote attacker with network access to either a Java-based OpenWire broker or client to run arbitrary shell commands by manipulating serialized class types in the OpenWire protocol to cause either the client or the broker (respectively) to instantiate any class on the classpath. Users are recommended to upgrade both brokers and clients to version 5.15.16, 5.16.7, 5.17.6, or 5.18.3 which fixes this issue.

- Scala 2.13.x before 2.13.9 has a Java deserialization chain in its JAR file. On its own, it cannot be exploited. There is only a risk in conjunction with Java object deserialization within an application. In such situations, it allows attackers to erase contents of arbitrary files, make network connections, or possibly run arbitrary code (specifically, Function0 functions) via a gadget chain. (CVE-2022-36944)

- IBM Engineering Requirements Management DOORS is vulnerable to cross-site request forgery which could allow an attacker to execute malicious and unauthorized actions transmitted from a user that the website trusts. IBM X-Force ID: 251216. (CVE-2023-28949)

- A cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in the HTML Data Processor for CKEditor 4.0 before 4.14 allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script through a crafted protected comment (with the cke_protected syntax). (CVE-2020-9281)

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


Upgrade IBM DOORS based upon the guidance specified in 7124058.
