Barracuda Networks Product: CudaTel - Communication Server 2.6.002.040

Exploitation-Technique:

Remote

Severity:

Medium

Details:

A client side input validation vulnerability is detected in Barracuda Networks CudaTel v2.6.002.040 appliance application. The non-persistent vulnerability allows remote attackers to manipulate website links to provoke malicious client side (application-side) requests.

The secound vulnerability (client side) is located in the `error:Internal Error` exception handling. When remote attackers provoke to load an invalid request the exception-handling will display the earlier inserted bbx_hostname (malicious) web context (exp. script codes). The attacker can use the vulnerable bbx_backup_site_host parameter of the test connection listing module to provoke an evil application exception-handling request.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerability results in client side phishing, client side session hijacking and client side external redirects to malware or evil websites. Exploitation of the vulnerability requires medium application user interaction.

Vulnerable Section(s): [+] Test - Connection

Vulnerable Module(s): [+] Exception-handling [Internal Error] - Listing

Vulnerable Parameter(s): [+] bbx_backup_site_host

Proof of Concept:

The vulnerability can be exploited by remote attackers with low or medium required user interaction and without privileged application user account. For demonstration or reproduce ...

Review: Exception-handling [Internal Error] - Listing [bbx_backup_site_host]

PoC: http://cudatel.ptest.cudasvc.com/gui/backup/test ?_=1353975862209&bbx_backup_site_id=2&bbx_backup_site_type=ftp &bbx_backup_site_host=%3E%22%3Ciframe%20src=http://vulnerability-lab.com%3E&bbx_backup_site_port=8&bbx_backup_site_user=BENJAMINKM &bbx_backup_site_path=%2F+%26+echo+%3E+%2Fdata%2Fsounds%2Fmusic%2F8%2F2a10577f-6764-4368-8571-44d42e4695ff

Solution:

The vulnerability can be patched by parsing the vulnerable bbx_backup_site_host parameter request. Parse the internal error exception-handling when processing to display the error string of the requested parameter. (error context)

2013-04-03: Vendor Fix/Patch

Note: Barracuda Networks provided a download in the customer section but also automatic update to patch the issue in the appliance series.

Risk:

The security risk of the client side input validation vulnerability is estimated as medium(-) because of the main location in the exception-handling.
