This vulnerability affects versions of JobScheduler prior to 1.7.4241
as well as versions prior to 1.6.4246.
The vendor has released patches for versions 1.7.x and 1.6.x at
This issue was reported to the vendor by Christian Schneider (@cschneider4711)
following a responsible disclosure process.
Using specially crafted requests to access the web interface of JobScheduler it is possible
as an underprivileged user ("info" permission) to list directories and read contents of
(sensitive) files from the installation of the JobScheduler web interface, which includes
datasource configurations (for example hibernate.cfg.xml and sos_settings.ini) as well
as permission config files (scheduler.xml). These can include passwords, depending on
which auth backend was defined. This can also be misused to escalate to the higher "all"
permission from the lower "info" permission.
Proof of concept
Due to the responsible disclosure process chosen and to not harm unpatched systems,
no concrete exploit code will be presented in this advisory.
