SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1032186
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1032186
CVE Reference:   GENERIC-MAP-NOMATCH   (Links to External Site)
Updated:  Jul 11 2015
Original Entry Date:  Apr 22 2015
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): 5.0.0 - 5.3.4
Description:   Several vulnerabilities were reported in Fortinet FortiWeb. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks. A remote authenticated user can execute arbitrary commands on the target system.

The FortiWeb auto update service page does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input before displaying the input. A remote user can cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the Fortinet FortiWeb interface and will run in the security context of that site. As a result, the code will be able to access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.

A remote authenticated WebUI administrator can exploit a flaw in the report function to execute operating system commands.

The WebUI FTP backup page enables HTML form autocomplete in a password field.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the Fortinet FortiWeb interface, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.

A remote authenticated administrator can execute arbitrary operating system commands.

Solution:   The vendor has issued a fix (5.3.5).
