Oracle Application Testing Suite Java Object Deserialization RCE (April 2016 CPU)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 90859
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 host has a web application installed that is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.

Description

The version of Oracle Application Testing Suite installed on the remote host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability due to unsafe deserialize calls of unauthenticated Java objects to the Apache Commons Collections (ACC) library. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by sending a crafted SOAP request, to execute arbitrary code on the target host.

Solution

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