J2EE LFI Vulnerability Scanner Detail

Vulnerability Overview:

Vulnerability: Generic J2EE LFI Scan Panel Detection
Detection Method: J2EE LFI Vulnerability Scanner
Severity: High
Impact: LFI vulnerabilities in J2EE applications can allow attackers to read sensitive files on the server, such as web.xml, which contains configuration information that could be exploited for further attacks.

Vulnerability Details:

This scanner attempts to exploit LFI vulnerabilities by requesting the web.xml file through various crafted paths that bypass standard access controls. These paths include URL-encoded sequences and traversal patterns designed to escape the web application's root directory and access the WEB-INF folder, where web.xml resides.

The Importance of Addressing LFI Vulnerabilities:

Addressing LFI vulnerabilities in J2EE applications is crucial for preventing unauthorized access to sensitive configuration files and protecting against potential exploitation. Remediation helps maintain the confidentiality and integrity of application data and configurations.
