JBoss Application Server (jbossas) JMX Console DeploymentFileRepository Traversal Arbitrary File Manipulation

High Nessus Plugin ID 23843


The remote web server contains a Java service that is affected by a directory traversal flaw.


The remote web server appears to be a version of JBoss that fails to sanitize user-supplied input to the BaseDir parameter used by the 'DeploymentFileRepository' service of JMX Console before using it to store or delete files. An unauthenticated attacker may be able to exploit this to alter files on the remote host subject to the privileges of the JBoss user.


Secure access to the JMX Console as described in the Wiki article referenced above.
