Oracle WebLogic Portal Apache Commons File Upload (January 2016 CPU)

High Nessus Plugin ID 88086


An application server installed on the remote host is affected by an arbitrary file upload vulnerability.


The version of Oracle WebLogic Portal installed on the remote host is missing a security patch from the January 2016 Critical Patch Update (CPU). It is, therefore, affected by a file upload vulnerability in the bundled Apache Commons library. A flaw exists in the DiskFileItem class that is triggered during the handling of NULL characters. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a serialized instance of the DiskFileItem class, to upload arbitrary files.


Apply the appropriate patch according to the January 2016 Oracle Critical Patch Update advisory.
