Oracle iPlanet Web Server 7.0.x < 7.0.15 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Plugin ID 59736


The remote web server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


According to its self-reported version, the Oracle iPlanet Web Server (formerly Sun Java System Web Server) running on the remote host is 7.0.x prior to 7.0.15. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities exist due to parameter validation errors that occur when input is submitted to admingui scripts 'cchelp2/Masthead.jsp', 'version/Masthead.jsp', and 'cchelp2/Navigator.jsp'. A remote attacker, using a crafted URL, can exploit these to execute arbitrary script code in the user's browser in the context of the session between the browser and the server. (CVE-2012-0516)

- An unspecified error exists in the Web Server component that can allow denial of service attacks.

Note that Oracle states that bug 12919334 'WS7: RANGE HEADER DOS VULNERABILITY' could not be reproduced.


Upgrade to Oracle iPlanet Web Server 7.0.15 or later.
