Status:

Published

Affected Products:

Fortigate Product: FortiDB - Database Security Appliance v2000B; 1000C & 400B

Exploitation-Technique:

Remote

Severity:

Medium

Details:

A non-persistent input validation vulnerability is detected in FortiGates FortiDB Appliance 2000B 1000C & 400B. The vulnerability allows remote attackers to implement/inject malicious script code on the application side (persistent). The vulnerability is located in the Java Number Format Exception Handling module with the bound vulnerable output listing. The bug is on application side & the execution is non-persistent out of the object exception-handling web application appliance context. Exploitation requires low or medium user inter action. Successful exploitation of the vulnerability can lead to session hijacking (manager/admin) or stable (persistent) context manipulation.

Vulnerable Module(s): [+] Java Number Format Exception Handling

Affected Function(s): [+] (Output) Listing

Proof of Concept:

The vulnerability can be exploited by remote attacker with medium or high required user inter action. For demonstration or reproduce ...

Solution:

The vulnerability can be prevented by parsing the java number format exception output listing & mkey application value.

2012-10-24: Vendor Fix/Patch

Risk:

The security risk of the non-persistent cross site scripting vulnerability is estimated as medium(-).
