SynopsisThe remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe version of Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher running on the remote host is 188.8.131.52.x prior to 184.108.40.206.180417 or 220.127.116.11.x prior to 18.104.22.168.180417, similarly, versions 22.214.171.124.x prior to 126.96.36.199.180116 and 188.8.131.52.x prior to 184.108.40.206.180116 are affected as noted in the April 2018 Critical Patch Update advisory. The Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher installed on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities:
- A vulnerability can be exploited by a remote attacker by sending a crafted serialized Java object. A successful attack would allow the attacker to execute arbitrary commands on the vulnerable server (CVE-2015-7501).
- A vulnerability exists on Apache Batik before 1.9. The vulnerability would allow an attacker to send a malicious SVG file to a user. An attacker who successfully exploits this vulnerability could result in the compromise of the server (CVE-2017-5662).
Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
