high Nessus Plugin ID 192624


An application running on a remote web server host is affected by a vulnerability


The version of Splunk installed on the remote host is prior to tested version. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the SVD-2024-0302 advisory.

- In Splunk Enterprise versions below 9.2.1, 9.1.4, and 9.0.9, the Dashboard Examples Hub lacks protections for risky SPL commands. This could let attackers bypass SPL safeguards for risky commands in the Hub. The vulnerability would require the attacker to phish the victim by tricking them into initiating a request within their browser. (CVE-2024-29946)

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


For Splunk Enterprise, upgrade versions to 9.2.1, 9.1.4, 9.0.9, or higher.For Splunk Cloud Platform, Splunk is actively patching and monitoring the Splunk Cloud instances.
