CVE-2023-32315 Scanner Detail

Openfire is an XMPP server that allows for instant messaging and group chat services. It is an open-source platform, licensed under the Apache License, and is widely used in corporate environments as an internal communication tool. With a web-based administrative console, Openfire offers a user-friendly interface for setting up and managing secure instant messaging services within a company. It provides features like user authentication, encryption and messaging integrity to ensure a secure communication channel for internal teams. 

The CVE-2023-32315 vulnerability was detected in Openfire's web-based administrative console earlier this year. This vulnerability occurs due to a path traversal attack on Openfire's Setup environment. An unauthenticated user can exploit this vulnerability to access restricted pages in the Openfire Admin Console, which are typically reserved for administrative users. This flaw is found in all versions of Openfire released since April 2015, starting with version 3.10.0.
