Apache CXF Lets Remote Authenticated Users Execute Unauthorized SOAP Actions
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1027554
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1027554
CVE Reference:   CVE-2012-3451   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Sep 21 2012
Impact:   Disclosure of system information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of system information, Modification of user information
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): prior to versions 2.4.9, 2.5.5, 2.6.2
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Apache CXF. A remote authenticated user can execute unauthorized commands on the target web service.

The SOAP web service does not validate that a SOAP Action message body is valid. A remote authenticated user can supply a SOAP Action String header with a specially crafted message body to execute a different and potentially unauthorized operation.

Only web services that use unique SOAPActions per service operation [not the default configuration].

Impact:   A remote authenticated user can execute potentially unauthorized actions on the target web service.
Solution:   The vendor has issued a fix (2.4.9, 2.5.5, 2.6.2).

The vendor's advisory is available at:
