IBM System Storage DS Storage Manager Profiler - Multiple Vulnerabilities

                                            IBM System Storage DS Storage Manager Profiler Multiple Vulnerabilities

Vendor: IBM Corporation
Product web page:
Affected version: 4.8.6

Summary: Through its extraordinary flexibility, reliability, and performance,
the IBM® System Storage® series is designed to manage a broad scope of storage
workloads that exist in today’s complex data center and do it effectively and
efficiently. This flagship IBM disk system can bring simplicity to your storage
environment by supporting a mix of random and sequential I/O workloads for a mix
of interactive and batch applications, regardless of whether they are running on
one of today’s popular distributed server platforms or on the mainframe.

Desc: IBM System Storage DS Storage Manager Profiler suffers from an SQL Injection
and a Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability. Input passed via the GET parameter
'selectedModuleOnly' in '' script is not properly sanitised before
being returned to the user or used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to manipulate
SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code. The GET parameter 'updateRegn' in the
'' script is vulnerable to a XSS issue where the attacker can
execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an
affected site.

Tested on: Apache-Coyote/1.1
