Description


Stefan Reuter has reported a vulnerability in Openfire, which can be exploited by malicious people to potentially compromise a vulnerable system.

The vulnerability is caused due to missing filter mapping within src/web/WEB-INF/web.xml, which allows access to the Java beans used to upload new plugins without proper authentication. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary code by uploading malicious plugins via the admin console (default port 9090).

The vulnerability is reported in versions prior to 3.3.1.


Solution:
Update to version 3.3.1.
