medium Web Application Scanning Plugin ID 98889

Language:

Synopsis

Apache Solr 3.6.0 < 4.3.1 XML External Entity

Description

The DocumentAnalysisRequestHandler in Apache Solr before 4.3.1 does incorrectly uses the EmptyEntityResolver, allowing remote, unauthenticated attackers to have allows remote attackers to have an unspecified impact by injecting XML data containing an external entity declaration in conjunction with a valid entity reference, related to an XML External Entity (XXE) issue.

Note that the scanner has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Update to Apache Solr version 4.3.1 or latest.
