Pandora FMS is a monitoring Open Source software. It watches your systems and applications, and allows you to 
know the status of any element of those systems. Pandora FMS could detect a network interface down, a defacement 
in your website, a memory leak in one of your server application, or the movement of any value of the NASDAQ 
new technology market. 

    * Detect new systems in network.
    * Checks for availability or performance.
    * Raise alerts when something goes wrong.
    * Allow to get data inside systems with its own lite agents (for almost every Operating System).
    * Allow to get data from outside, using only network probes. Including SNMP.
    * Get SNMP Traps from generic network devices. 
    * Generate real time reports and graphics.
    * SLA reporting.
    * User defined graphical views.
    * Store data for months, ready to be used on reporting.
    * Real time graphs for every module. 
    * High availability for each component.
    * Scalable and modular architecture.
    * Supports up to 2500 modules per server.
    * User defined alerts. Also could be used to react on incidents.
    * Integrated incident manager.
    * Integrated DB management: purge and DB compaction. 
    * Multiuser, multi profile, multi group.
    * Event system with user validation for operation in teams.
    * Granularity of accesses and user profiles for each group and each user.
    * Profiles could be personalized using up to eight security attributes without limitation on groups or profiles.

Technical Details & Description:
Multiple Input Validation Vulnerabilities are detected on serverside. An attacker is able 
to include own malicious Scriptroutines on server-side (Example;JS). 
Attackers can gather Session-Data (Cookies) of Customers. 
CSRF & XSS Attacks on the server-side are possible.


This Vulnerability can be used by restricted Users to delete the Serverlist without permission or restriction (no control!). 
Can be used over restricted customer accounts.


The Parameter loads all existing Filename with .php ending. So its possible to load any .php file in the same area with
complete content. The result is a local file-inclusion vulnerability.


Potential Attackers can execute SQL-Statements over the Notes attached to incident function of the monitoring application.


Proof of Concept (PoC):

--- SQL ERROR ---
You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax 
to use near '' at line 1 ('UPDATE tincidencia SET id_lastupdate = 'demo' WHERE id_incidencia IN ()') 
in /var/www/pandora_console/include/functions_incidents.php on line 140

Security Risk:
The security risk of the client-side (non-persistent) vulnerabilities are estimated as low.

The security risk of the persistent web vulnerabilities are estimated as medium.

The security risk is estimated as medium.

The security risk of this vulnerability is estimated as medium.

The security risk of the sql injection vulnerability is estimated as critical.
