Ubuntu 10.04 LTS : libcommons-fileupload-java vulnerability (USN-2029-1)

high Nessus Plugin ID 70876
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description

It was discovered that Apache Commons FileUpload incorrectly handled file names with NULL bytes in serialized instances. An attacker could use this issue to possibly write to arbitrary files.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected libcommons-fileupload-java package.
