Apache CouchDB < 1.0.4 / 1.1.2 / 1.2.1 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 6796


The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities


The remote host is running CouchDB, a document-oriented database.

Versions of CouchDB earlier than 1.0.4, 1.1.x earlier than 1.1.2 or 1.2.x earlier than 1.2.1. It is therefore potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified error exists in the included MochiWeb HTTP library that can allow access to arbitrary files via directory traversal attacks. Note that reportedly, this issue only affects installs on Windows hosts. (CVE-2012-5641)

- An error related to JSONP callbacks can allow an unspecified cross-site scripting attack. (CVE-2012-5649)

- An input validation error exists related to unspecified query parameters and the Futon UI that can allow DOM-based cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2012-5650)


Upgrade to CouchDB 1.0.4 / 1.1.2 / 1.2.1 or later
