- 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.
