Ipswitch WhatsUp Input Validation Flaws Let Remote Users Conduct SQL Injection and Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1034833
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1034833
CVE Reference:   CVE-2015-6004, CVE-2015-6005   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Jan 28 2016
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of system information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): prior to 16.4
Description:   Two vulnerabilities were reported in Ipswitch WhatsUp Gold. A remote user can inject SQL commands. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The software does not properly validate user-supplied input in the "Find Device" search field. A remote user can supply a specially crafted parameter value to execute SQL commands on the underlying database [CVE-2015-6004].

The software does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input in certain SNMP OID objects before displaying the input [CVE-2015-6005]. A remote user can cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the WhatsUp software 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.

The vendor was notified on September 1, 2015.

An anonymous researcher (via Beyond Security's SSD program), Owen Shearing of 7Safe Ltd., and Rapid7 separately reported these vulnerabilities.

Impact:   A remote user can execute SQL commands on the underlying database.

A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the WhatsUp software, 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.

Solution:   The vendor has issued a fix (16.4) [in December 2015].
