Customer is using the Nessus Vulnerability scanner and is coming out with the finding "Elasticsearch Unrestricted Information Disclosure Vulnerability".

Please let me know how we can resolve the vulnerability or any workaround.

It is in priority , Thanks.

Welcome to our community! :smiley:

Elasticsearch 1.6 is no longer supported as it's well past it's EOL. You will need to upgrade.

Thanks for the response.

Which version is stable to use and easy to migrate from 1.6.1 ?

And which is not prone to the above mentioned vulnerability.

The current version is 7.17, 8.0 is not far off being released.

There is nothing easy as 1.6 is sooooo old.
I'd consider reindexing the data if possible.
You might want to try the reindex from remote feature. Not sure how it works with a 1.6 cluster though.
