Synopsis

An application server installed on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of Oracle WebLogic Server installed on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the Apache Struts component due to improper handling of multithreaded access to an ActionForm instance. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted multipart request, to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service condition.
(CVE-2016-1181)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Web Services subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to modify or delete arbitrary data accessible to the server. (CVE-2017-3506)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the Web Container subcomponent due to improper handling of reflected PartItem File requests. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted request, to execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2017-3531)

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the Apache Struts component in the Jakarta Multipart parser due to improper handling of the Content-Type, Content-Disposition, and Content-Length headers.
An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted header value in the HTTP request, to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-5638)

Solution

Apply the appropriate patch according to the April 2017 Oracle Critical Patch Update advisory.
