SynopsisThe remote database server is potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionAccording to its banner, the version of CouchDB running on the remote host is earlier than 1.0.4, 1.1.x earlier than 1.1.2 or 1.2.x earlier than 1.2.1. It is, therefore, potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- An unspecified error exists in the included MochiWeb HTTP library that can allow access to arbitrary files via directory traversal attacks. Note that reportedly, this issue only affects installs on Windows hosts.
- An error related to JSONP callbacks can allow an unspecified cross-site scripting attack. (CVE-2012-5649)
- An input validation error exists related to unspecified query parameters and the Futon UI that can allow DOM- based cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2012-5650)
Note that Nessus did not actually test for these flaws but instead, has relied on the version in CouchDB's banner.
SolutionUpgrade to CouchDB 1.0.4 / 1.1.2 / 1.2.1 or later.
