Apache Ofbiz Remote Code Execution (CVE-2023-49070)

Application Details

OFBiz is a Java based web framework including an entity engine, a service engine and a widget based UI allowing developers to quickly prototype and develop web applications.


Apache Ofbiz could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by a no longer maintained XML-RPC.


By sending a specially crafted request, an attacker could exploit the 'checkLogin' function due to a flaw in the conditional block. This will return a 'success' which results in authentication bypass and code execution.

GET /webtools/control/xmlrpc;/?USERNAME=&PASSWORD=s&requirePasswordChange=Y

By turning this into a traffic file and matching rule, we are able to detect attempts to execute arbitrary code on the system.


Idappcom have created signature 8024503 along with a traffic file for this vulnerability.
