The Problems:

(1) Cross Site Scripting (XSS) ==========================

A Cross Site Scripting exists on the useredit_account.wdm file. Example: http://server/WebAdmin/useredit_account.wdm?user=%3Cscript%3Ealert('test')%3C/script%3E

(2) Users can edit all the user accounts ====================================

There is no validation on the useredit_account.wdm script to disable access to other user accounts. Example: http://server/WebAdmin/useredit_account.wdm?user=otheruser@domain

(3) HTML Injection ==============

The file modalfram.wdm allows to load any web page to make it look as if comes from the WebAdmin server. Example: http://server/WebAdmin/modalframe.wdm?file=http://other_server/page.wdm

  • This vulnerabilities would not enable an attacker to gain any privileges on an affected computer.

  • An attacker will need to be able to logon to WebAdmin to take advantage of vulnerability number 2, but he will only be able to view or modify the settings that he can modify on his own account (for example, if an user cannot modify his own "Name", he won't be able to modify the name in any other account, but if he can modify his own "Name", he will be able to modify the name in any other account).

Vendor notified on December 14, 2004. Vendor replied on December 14, 2004. Patch released on December 14, 2004.
