  5. Reporting / Analysis

1. Information Gathering

  1. The PersistentManager is enabled and it’s using a FileStore
  2. The attacker is able to upload a file with arbitrary content, has control over the filename and knows the location where it is uploaded
  3. There are gadgets in the classpath that can be used for a Java deserialization attack

  2. IsPersistentManager enabled?
  3. We know the upload file path on the server ?
  4. We know the upload directory?
