WebGUI < 6.8.6 'Anonymous' Account Creation

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 3427


The remote host may give an attacker information useful for future attacks.


The remote host is running WebGUI, a content management framework. The remote version of this software is vulnerable to a flaw where an anonymous user can be created even if the Administrator has configured the site to reject the creation of anonymous accounts. An attacker exploiting this flaw would only need to be able to send a malformed HTTP request to the WebGUI server. Successful exploitation would lead to the creation of an anonymous account.


Upgrade to version 6.8.6 or higher.
