Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information|
Exploit Included: Yes |
A vulnerability was reported in Trend Micro Control Manager. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.|
The software does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input in the audit log before displaying the input. A remote user can submit a specially crafted username value. Then, when the log is displayed by a target, authenticated administrative user, arbitrary scripting code will be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the Trend Micro Control Manager 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 without response.

Trend Micro Control Manager (TMCM) Persistent XSS Vulnerability
June 23, 2006
Trend Micro Control Manager is a centralized, web-based outbreak
management console designed to simplify enterprise-wide coordination
of outbreak security actions and management of Trend Micro products
and services. Trend Micro Control Manager acts as a central command
center for deployment of Trend Micro's threat-specific expertise
across the network and to select third-party products to proactively
Trend Micro Control Manager is vulnerable to a persistent,
unauthenticated XSS attack. This vulnerability can be exploited by an
attacker to obtain full administrative access to the TMCM
administration console, compromising the integrity of the corporate
enterprise anti-virus infrastructure.
This vulnerability stems from TMCMs failure to sanitize audit log
content when displaying it through the management console. As such, an
attacker may inject script into the username field at the login page.
Any logins, failed or successful are then available in the Access Log
for execution when viewed by an authenticated administrative user.
Trend Micro Control Manager 3.5
Olders versions may also be affected.
Control network access to the TMCM web console.
Vendor was contacted on several occasions with no response.
