SAProuter Remote Authentication Bypass (Note 1853140)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 72263
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.


The remote application is susceptible to an authentication bypass attack.


The remote host has a version of SAProuter that is affected by an authentication bypass vulnerability. When started with the '-X' flag, SAProuter permits routing to itself given a 'saprouttab' that allows access to its port. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can issue commands to SAProuter.


Restart SAProuter without '-X' and review the permissions in 'saprouttab'.
