Zend Framework 1.x < 1.12.14 / 2.x < 2.4.6 / 2.5.x < 2.5.2 XXE Injection
High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 9136
SynopsisThe remote host is using a version of Zend Framework that is vulnerable to an XXE (Xml eXternal Entity) injection attack.
DescriptionVersions of Zend Framework 1.x earlier than 1.12.14, 2.x earlier than 2.4.6, or 2.5.x earlier than 2.5.28 are vulnerable to an XXE (Xml eXternal Entity) injection flaw in ZendMXL that is triggered during the parsing of multibyte XML data. The issue is due to an incorrectly configured XML parser accepting XML external entities from an untrusted source. By sending specially crafted XML data, a remote attacker can gain unauthorized access to information or cause a denial of service.
SolutionUpgrade Zend Framework to version 2.5.2 or later. If version 2.5.x is not available, versions 2.4.6 and 1.12.14 are also patched for these vulnerabilities.
