Original Entry Date:  Feb 1 2006
Impact:   Disclosure of system information, Disclosure of user information, User access via network

Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Symantec's Sygate Management Server (SMS). A remote user can inject SQL commands to gain administrative access to the application.

The software does not properly validate user-supplied input. A remote user can supply a specially crafted parameter value to execute SQL commands on the underlying database. This can be exploited to overwrite the password for any SMS account, including the SMS administrator account. Then, the remote user can use the new password to gain access to the SMS console with full administrator privileges. With full administrator privileges, the remote user can, for example, disable all agents or propagate malware to all managed agents.

The vendor credits Guillaume Goutaudier and Nicolas Gregoire at Exaprobe, SAS, France with reporting this vulnerability.

Impact:   A remote user can execute SQL commands on the underlying database. This can be exploited to gain administrative access on the application.
Solution:   The vendor has issued a fix.
