Description

Elastic reports :

Vulnerability Summary: All Elasticsearch versions prior to 1.5.2 and 1.4.5 are vulnerable to a directory traversal attack that allows an attacker to retrieve files from the server running Elasticsearch when one or more site plugins are installed, or when Windows is the server OS.

Remediation Summary: Users should upgrade to 1.4.5 or 1.5.2. Users that do not want to upgrade can address the vulnerability by disabling site plugins. See the CVE description for additional options.
