CWE ID 522


CVE-2023-50291 is an Insufficiently Protected Credentials vulnerability in Apache Solr. This vulnerability affects Apache Solr versions 6.0.0 through 8.11.2 and versions 9.0.0 before 9.3.0. The issue arises from the "/admin/info/properties" endpoint, which publishes the Solr process' Java system properties, including sensitive ones like "basicauth" and "aws.secretKey", without proper protection. This exposes the credentials in the user interface of the Solr Admin page, making them visible to unauthorized users with the "config-read" permission in Solr Clouds with Authorization enabled. To remediate this vulnerability, users are advised to upgrade to either version 9.3.0 or 8.11.3, which contain fixes for this issue. The vulnerability has a high base severity rating of 7.5 and poses a potential danger to organizations by compromising confidentiality if exploited by an attacker over the network without requiring any privileges or user interaction
