Apache Tomcat / JBoss EJBInvokerServlet / JMXInvokerServlet Multiple Vulnerabilities

critical Nessus Plugin ID 70414


The remote web server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The 'EBJInvokerServlet' and 'JMXInvokerServlet' servlets hosted on the web server on the remote host are accessible to unauthenticated users. The remote host is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A security bypass vulnerability exists due to improper restriction of access to the console and web management interfaces. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via direct requests, to bypass authentication and gain administrative access.

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists due to the JMXInvokerHAServlet and EJBInvokerHAServlet invoker servlets not properly restricting access to profiles. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to bypass authentication and invoke MBean methods, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code.

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the EJBInvokerServlet and JMXInvokerServlet servlets due to the ability to post a marshalled object. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted request, to install arbitrary applications. Note that this issue is known to affect McAfee Web Reporter versions prior to or equal to version 5.2.1 as well as Symantec Workspace Streaming version and possibly earlier.


If using EMC Data Protection Advisor, either upgrade to version 6.x or apply the workaround for 5.x.

Otherwise, contact the vendor or remove any affected JBoss servlets.
