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.

SynopsisThe remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
DescriptionA directory traversal vulnerability in RequestUtil.java was discovered which allows remote authenticated users to bypass intended SecurityManager restrictions and list a parent directory via a /..
(slash dot dot) in a pathname used by a web application in a getResource, getResourceAsStream, or getResourcePaths call.
The Mapper component processes redirects before considering security constraints and Filters, which allows remote attackers to determine the existence of a directory via a URL that lacks a trailing / (slash) character. (CVE-2015-5345)
It was found that the expression language resolver evaluated expressions within a privileged code section. A malicious web application could use this flaw to bypass security manager protections. (CVE-2014-7810)
