                                            `Affected Software/Device: IBM MRO MAXIMO  
Tested Version: 4.1 , 5.2  
Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting & Information Disclosure  
Risk: Low / Medium  
Description: MRO Maximo is a strategic asset and service management  
system that runs on a number of databases including Oracle, SQL Server  
and IBM DB2. It is used by a wide variety of organizations ranging from  
municipal and county governments, to corporations to government  
contractors. We identified several security problems which are not  
reported before during our pen-tests.  
1- Maximo contains publicly accessible application named debug.jsp. This  
application discloses useful information for attackers such as installed  
OS type and version, full installation path of application. A Remote  
attacker can use this information for further attacks.  
2 - Debug.jsp is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper  
validation of values in HTTP Header such as User-Agent, Cookie, etc. A  
remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to inject malicious  
script into a Web page which would be executed in a victim's Web browser  
within the security context of the hosting Web site, once the page is  
viewed. An attacker could use this vulnerability to steal the victim's  
cookie-based authentication credentials.  
Sample Request:  
GET /jsp/common/system/debug.jsp HTTP/1.1  
Accept: <script>alert('XSS');</script>  
Accept-Language: <script>alert('XSS');</script>  
UA-CPU: <script>alert('XSS');</script>  
Accept-Encoding: <script>alert('XSS');</script>  
User-Agent: <script>alert('XSS');</script>  
Host: maximo  
Connection: Keep-Alive  
Cookie: <script>alert('XSS');</script>
