Spring Framework 4.3.x < 4.3.15 / 5.0.x < 5.0.5 Windows Directory Traversal Vulnerability (CVE-2018-1271)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 119846
SynopsisThe remote Windows host contains a web application framework library that is affected by a directory traversal vulnerability.
DescriptionThe remote Windows host contains a Spring Framework library version that is 4.3.x prior to 4.3.15 or 5.0.x prior to 5.0.5. It is, therefore, affected by a directory traversal vulnerability. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by sending a URI that contains directory traversal characters, to disclose the contents of files located outside of the server's restricted path.
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to Spring Framework version 4.3.15 or 5.0.5 or later.
