Debian Security Advisory

DLA-1046-1 lucene-solr -- LTS security update

Date Reported:
30 Jul 2017
Affected Packages:
Security database references:
In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 867712.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2017-3163.
More information:

lucene-solr handler supports an HTTP API (/replication?command=filecontent&file=<file_name>) which is vulnerable to path traversal attack. Specifically, this API does not perform any validation of the user specified file_name parameter. This can allow an attacker to download any file readable to Solr server process even if it is not related to the actual Solr index state.

For Debian 7 Wheezy, this problem has been fixed in version 3.6.0+dfsg-1+deb7u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your lucene-solr packages.
