New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

ForgeRock OpenAM < 7.0 Remote Code Execution


ForgeRock OpenAM is a popular access management software which is used to provide single sign-on (SSO) features to web applications. ForgeRock OpenAM versions below 7.0 suffer from a deserialization vulnerability, allowing a remote unauthenticated attacker to perform remote code execution on the target application.


As a temporary workaround, disable the VersionServlet mapping in the web.xml file or block access to the `ccversion` endpoint with a reverse proxy. Upgrade at least to version 7.0 to fix the issue.
