high Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5521
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.


The remote web server is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.


The remote host is running JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (JBEAP) < 4.2.0.CP09 / 4.3.0.CP08. Such versions are potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

- The JMX Console configuration only specified an authentication requirement for requests that used the GET and POST HTTP 'verbs'. A remote attacker could create an HTTP request that does not specify GET or POST, causing it to be executed by the default GET handler without authentication. (CVE-2010-0738)

- It is possible to bypass authentication for /web-console by specifying a HTTP method other than GET or POST. (CVE-2010-1428)

- An information disclosure vulnerability that allows attackers to acquired details about deployed web contexts. (CVE-2010-1429)


Upgrade to JBoss EAP version 4.2.0.CP09, 4.3.0.CP08, or later.
