Symantec Reporting Server < Multiple Vulnerabilities

high Nessus Plugin ID 25458


The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by several issues.


The remote host is running Symantec Reporting Server, a web-based tool for creating reports about Symantec enterprise antivirus products.

The version of Symantec Reporting Server installed on the remote host allows a remote attacker to bypass authentication to various scripts and gain access to the application.

Additionally, it reportedly allows a user to create a malicious executable in the process of exporting data. This could, in turn, be executed in the context of the web server user, and may display the administrator's hashed password after failed login attempts, which might allow an attacker to gain control of the affected application.


Upgrade to Symantec Reporting Server version or later.
