Medium Nessus Plugin ID 81424

New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.9


The remote web server contains a web application that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


According to its banner, the version of Bugzilla running on the remote host is potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A command injection vulnerability exists due to a failure to properly utilize the 3 arguments form for open(). This allows an authenticated, remote attacker with 'editcomponents' permission, to inject commands into attributes. (CVE-2014-8630)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the WebServices API. An attacker can execute imported functions from non-WebServices modules.

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to Bugzilla 4.0.16 / 4.2.12 / 4.4.7 / 5.0rc1 or later.
