medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 9943
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.

Synopsis

The remote web server contains a Java application that is affected by multiple XXE (Xml eXternal Entity) attack vectors.

Description

Versions of Apache Solr prior to 5.0 are affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A XXE injection flaw exists in 'UpdateRequestHandler' that is triggered during the parsing of 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 access to arbitrary files. (CVE-2012-6612, CVE-2013-6407)
- A XXE injection flaw in 'DocumentAnalysisRequestHandler' exists that is triggered during the parsing of 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 access to arbitrary files. (CVE-2013-6408)

Solution

Upgrade to Solr 5.0 or later.
