Detectify security updates for 02 May

May 2, 2019

For continuous coverage, we push out major Detectify security updates every two weeks, keeping our tool up-to-date with new findings, features and improvements sourced from our security researchers and Crowdsource ethical hacker community. Due to confidentially agreements, we cannot publicize all security update releases here but they are immediately added to our scanner and available to all users. This post highlights a few things that we have improved in the last two weeks.

The following are some of the security vulnerabilities reported by Detectify Crowdsource ethical hackers. We added these tests to the Detectify scanner tool on 02 May.

CVE-2019-3799: Spring Cloud Config Directory Traversal

It is possible for an attacker to read the content of local files on the server.

Go to details of this vulnerability.

CVE-2018-19439: Oracle Secure Global Desktop XSS

There is a page that reflects the value of the GET-parameters without properly escaping it.

Read more here.

CVE-2011-4367: Apache MyFaces Directory Traversal

Similarly to the first issue here, this allows an attacker to read the content of files on the server. This is done by passing the filename as “../WEB.INF” in a GET-parameter.

Oracle Discoverer Viewer BI Open Redirect

The server takes the value of a GET-parameter and creates a redirect thereto. This is a very straight-forward open redirect.
