Jetty < 5.16.0 JSP Source Code Disclosure

Medium

Synopsis

The remote web server can disclose source code.

Description

The remote host is running Jetty, a Java web server that can be downloaded off the Internet and is currently bundled with some IBM applications. This version of Jetty is vulnerable to a remote 'source code disclosure' flaw. An attacker exploiting this flaw would append a '%5C' to the end of a '.jsp' URI request. Successful exploitation would result in the attacker downloading source code.

Solution

Upgrade to version 5.16.0 or higher.
