Sun Java Web Server WebAdmin arbitrary code execution
|sunjava-webadmin-bbs (5135)||High Risk|
Sun Java Web Server could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code as the user running the server. The Web Administration program allows a user to point a servlet to any file on the system to compile and execute. An attacker can use the sample bulletin board program that ships with the Java Web Server to post JSP (Java Server Pages) code, which can be executed using the WebAdmin utility.
Apply the appropriate patch for your system, as listed in Sun Microsystems, Inc. Security Bulletin #00197. See References.
