ID CVE-2018-2911
Summary Vulnerability in the Oracle GlassFish Server component of Oracle Fusion Middleware (subcomponent: Java Server Faces). The supported version that is affected is 3.1.2. Easily exploitable vulnerability allows unauthenticated attacker with network access via HTTP to compromise Oracle GlassFish Server. Successful attacks require human interaction from a person other than the attacker. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in unauthorized creation, deletion or modification access to critical data or all Oracle GlassFish Server accessible data as well as unauthorized access to critical data or complete access to all Oracle GlassFish Server accessible data and unauthorized ability to cause a partial denial of service (partial DOS) of Oracle GlassFish Server. CVSS 3.0 Base Score 8.3 (Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability impacts). CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:L).
Vulnerable Configurations
  • Oracle GlassFish Server 3.1.2
Base: 6.8
  • Embedding Scripts within Scripts
    An attack of this type exploits a programs' vulnerabilities that are brought on by allowing remote hosts to execute scripts. The attacker leverages this capability to execute scripts to execute his/her own script by embedding it within other scripts that the target software is likely to execute. The attacker must have the ability to inject script into script that is likely to be executed. If this is done, then the attacker can potentially launch a variety of probes and attacks against the web server's local environment, in many cases the so-called DMZ, back end resources the web server can communicate with, and other hosts. With the proliferation of intermediaries, such as Web App Firewalls, network devices, and even printers having JVMs and Web servers, there are many locales where an attacker can inject malicious scripts. Since this attack pattern defines scripts within scripts, there are likely privileges to execute said attack on the host. Of course, these attacks are not solely limited to the server side, client side scripts like Ajax and client side JavaScript can contain malicious scripts as well. In general all that is required is for there to be sufficient privileges to execute a script, but not protected against writing.
  • Signature Spoofing by Key Theft
    An attacker obtains an authoritative or reputable signer's private signature key by theft and then uses this key to forge signatures from the original signer to mislead a victim into performing actions that benefit the attacker.

description According to its self-reported version, the Oracle GlassFish Server running on the remote host is 3.1.2.x prior to Is is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities: - A vulnerability could allow an Attacker with unauthenticated network access to compromise Oracle GlassFish Server. A successful attack would allow the access to critical data including creation, deletion or modification on the remote server. This attack requires human interaction. (CVE-2018-2911) - An unauthenticated attacker with Network access can compromise Oracle GlassFish Server. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could cause a hang or a complete DOS of Oracle GlassFish Server. (CVE-2018-3152) - An unauthenticated attacker with network access could compromise Oracle GlassFish Server. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could have read access to Oracle GlassFish Server information. (CVE-2018-3210)
