Low Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 2866
SynopsisThe remote host is vulnerable to a flaw which allows for the bypassing of authentication.
DescriptionThe remote host is running the Oracle Application Server. This version is reported vulnerable to an authentication bypass attack. Specifically, administrators may restrict access using the 'mod_access' Oracle module. However, attackers may utilize the Oracle Webcache service in order to bypass these restrictions. An attacker exploiting this flaw would be able to elevate privileges and potentially gain access to administrative functions or confidential data.
