ViRobot Linux Server filescan Authentication Bypass
Critical Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 3443
SynopsisThe remote web server is affected by an authentication bypass flaw.
DescriptionThe remote host is running ViRobot Linux Server, a commercial anti-virus application server. The installed version of ViRobot Linux Server has a flaw such that an attacker can bypass authentication and gain access to its 'filescan' component by supplying a special cookie. An unauthenticated attacker may be able to leverage this flaw to delete arbitrary files on the remote host or disable access to the service by submitting scans of a large number of large files on the remote host.
SolutionUpgrade or patch according to vendor recommendations.
