CVE-2015-3337 Scanner Detail

Elasticsearch is a search engine based on the Lucene library. It is commonly used by companies to store, search, analyze, and visualize large amounts of data in real-time. Elasticsearch is an open-source solution, and it is particularly useful for those who require fast searching capabilities.

CVE-2015-3337 is a directory traversal vulnerability that was detected in Elasticsearch before version 1.4.5 and 1.5.x before 1.5.2. The vulnerability allows remote attackers to read arbitrary files via unspecified vectors when a site plugin is enabled. Once an attacker has access to the filesystem, they can modify, delete, or steal confidential information. This vulnerability is a serious security threat that should be addressed immediately.

Exploiting the vulnerability can lead to a number of disastrous consequences for organizations. A malicious actor can gain unauthorized access to sensitive data, such as user credentials, payment information, and private documents. This information can then be used for financial gain or in more complex cyber attacks, such as phishing, social engineering, and ransomware. The end result can be devastating for businesses, causing reputational damage, legal implications, and financial losses.
