Title: Blind SQL Injection on Imperva SecureSphere Web Application Firewall MX
Discovery date: 09/04/2013

Version: Imperva SecureSphere WAF MX 9.5.6

Class: Blind SQL Injection
This security vulnerability affects:
* Imperva SecureSphere WAF Management Web Console (MX), version 9.5.6
The management console of Imperva WAF allows an authenticated user having the only privilege to view lookup dataset, to perform a privilege escalation, and extract through a blind sql injection, the MD5 hash of Administrator's account on the console.
If you inject this query:
stringindatasetchoosen%%' and 1 = any (select 1 from SECURE.CONF_SECURE_MEMBERS where FULL_NAME like '%%dministrator' and rownum<=1 and PASSWORD like '0%') and '1%%'='1
into the search box under the Main Menu->Setup->Global Object->Scope Selection (Data Lookup)->Lookup Data Set, it is possible (depending on whether the query returns true or false) to extract the MD5 hash of the password of the Administrator's account on the console so:
If the query return true then I see the searched string (stringindatasetchoosen), this means that the Administrator MD5 hashed password start with 0 character, by doing this, I can enumerate entire MD5, by injecting query like:
and PASSWORD like '0% -> to find the first character, once you find the first character, I inject:
and PASSWORD like '0a% -> to find second character
and so on until you discover all 32 characters of hash.
