JBoss JMX Console DeploymentFileRepository Directory Traversal Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a Java service that is affected by a
directory traversal flaw.

Description :

The remote web server appears to be a version of JBoss that fails to
sanitize user-supplied input to the BaseDir parameter used by the
'DeploymentFileRepository' service of JMX Console before using it to
store or delete files. An unauthenticated attacker may be able to
exploit this to alter files on the remote host subject to the
rights of the JBoss user.
