TITLE: BEA WebLogic MBean Exposure of Configuration Information


VERIFY ADVISORY: http://secunia.com/advisories/18396/

CRITICAL: Less critical

IMPACT: Exposure of system information, Exposure of sensitive information

WHERE: >From remote

SOFTWARE: BEA WebLogic Express 6.x http://secunia.com/product/1281/ BEA WebLogic Express 7.x http://secunia.com/product/1282/ BEA WebLogic Express 8.x http://secunia.com/product/1843/ BEA WebLogic Server 6.x http://secunia.com/product/753/ BEA WebLogic Server 7.x http://secunia.com/product/754/ BEA WebLogic Server 8.x http://secunia.com/product/1360/

DESCRIPTION: A security issue has been reported in BEA WebLogic Server and WebLogic Express, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose system information and potentially sensitive information.

The problem is that the MBeanHome for a site can be retrieved anonymously via JNDI (Java Naming and Directory Interface). This can be exploited to disclose certain configuration MBeans containing potentially sensitive configuration information.

Successful exploitation requires RMI (Remote Method Invocation) access to the site and that anonymous admin lookup has not been disabled.

The security issue has been reported in versions 6.1, 7.0, and 8.1. Other versions may also be affected.

SOLUTION: The vendor recommends to protect JNDI entries containing sensitive information, disabling anonymous admin lookup (version 7.x or later), or restricting RMI access. See the vendor advisory for more details.

PROVIDED AND/OR DISCOVERED BY: Reported by the vendor.
