High Nessus Plugin ID 34839
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionAndreas Kurtz reports :
The jabber server Openfire (<= version 3.6.0a) contains several serious vulnerabilities. Depending on the particular runtime environment these issues can potentially even be used by an attacker to execute code on operating system level.
- Authentication bypass - This vulnerability provides an attacker full access to all functions in the admin webinterface without providing any user credentials. The Tomcat filter which is responsible for authentication could be completely circumvented.
- SQL injection - It is possible to pass SQL statements to the backend database through a SQL injection vulnerability. Depending on the particular runtime environment and database permissions it is even possible to write files to disk and execute code on operating system level.
SolutionUpdate the affected package.
