Subject [jira] [Commented] (AXIS2-5846) Local file inclusion vulnerability in Axis2
Date Sun, 23 Apr 2017 11:07:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AXIS2-5846?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15980360#comment-15980360
] 

Andreas Veithen commented on AXIS2-5846:
----------------------------------------

As far as I can see this occurs only with SimpleHTTPServer, not with AxisServlet. Since the
admin console isn't supported with SimpleHTTPServer, the user name and password exposed isn't
actually used, and an attacker wouldn't be able to gain any additional privileges.

Also note that (at least in my opinion) SimpleHTTPServer shouldn't be used in production systems.
Probably we should replace that code with an embedded Jetty server and use AxisServlet.

>             Project: Axis2
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 1.6.2
>            Reporter: Nupur
>            Priority: Critical

> Defect CSCvd86595: Local file inclusion vulnerability in Axis2 
> An defect has been raised on Present PCP 7.3 axis version 
> *There is a Local File Inclusion (LFI) present in the Axis2 service. It 
>   allows the attacker to view certain files that would normally be inaccessible. This
is a violation of PSB requirement SEC-SUP-PATCH because this is a publicly disclosed vulnerability
with a patch. 
> *security impact: Some of the files that are accessible via this LFI contain the username
and password to the Axis2 admin interface. While the admin interface appears to be disabled
currently, if it was ever enabled or an attacker found a way to access it, they would gain
admin access to the Axis2 system. 
> In addition, this vulnerability is publicly known, which makes it more likely to be exploited
by an attacker.
