`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.
