Description

According to its self-reported version number, the remote web server is hosting a version of Symantec Web Gateway with a database component prior to version 5.0.0.1277. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

  • A flaw exists that allows the bypassing of access redirect restrictions. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to inject commands with elevated privileges. (CVE-2015-5690)

  • A reflected cross-site scripting vulnerability exists in the management console due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary script in the user's browser session. (CVE-2015-5691)

  • A flaw exists in the admin_messages.php script due to improperly sanitizing user-uploaded files. An attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary PHP code via a crafted file. (CVE-2015-5692)

  • A flaw exists related to Traffic Capture EoP due to the Hostname field in the administrator configuration facility not properly sanitizing user-supplied input before writing it to the '/etc/sysconfig/network' file, which is processed during startup and shutdown. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a crafted hostname, to inject commands which are executed with root privileges. (CVE-2015-5693)

  • An unspecified flaw exists exists related to the Boot Time EoP. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to inject arbitrary commands. (CVE-2015-5647)

  • A flaw exists in the edit_alert.php script due to not properly sanitizing user-supplied input to the 'alertid' and 'applianceid' GET parameters. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to inject or manipulate SQL queries, resulting in the disclosure of arbitrary data. (CVE-2015-6548)
