Xerox Document Centre Denial of Service (DoS)

high Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 2697
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 is vulnerable to a Denial of Service (DoS) attack.

Description

The remote host is running Xerox Document Centre, an administrative, web-based GUI to a Xerox device. This version is reportedly prone to a remote Denial of Service (DoS) attack. An attacker exploiting this flaw would only need to be able to send malformed HTTP requests to the web interface of the printer. A successful attack would result in a loss of availability to the users of the printer.

Solution

Upgrade or patch according to vendor recommendations.
