HP SiteScope Input Validation Hole in Displaying SNMP Traps Permits Script Injection Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1021068
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1021068
CVE Reference:   CVE-2007-4350   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Oct 20 2008
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information
Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): 9.0 build 911; possibly other versions
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in HP SiteScope. A remote user can conduct script injection attacks.

The software does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied SNMP traps before displaying the input. A remote user can send a specially crafted SNMP trap request that, when viewed by a target user via the web interface, will cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the HP SiteScope 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 October 15, 2007.

Dyon Balding of Secunia Research reported this vulnerability.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the HP SiteScope 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:   No solution was available at the time of this entry.
Vendor URL:  www.hp.com/ (Links to External Site)
Cause:   Input validation error
Underlying OS:  Java, Linux (Any), UNIX (Any), Windows (Any)

Message History:   None.

4) Description of Vulnerability

Secunia Research has discovered a vulnerability in HP SiteScope, which
can be exploited by malicious people to conduct script insertion
attacks.
 
The SiteScope server performs agent-less monitoring of the IT
infrastructure and can be configured to receive SNMP traps from 
devices. The status of the SNMP monitor and the content of received 
SNMP trap messages can be viewed in the web interface. The received 
SNMP messages are rendered in the context of the management interface 
with no filtering or sanitising. This can be exploited to execute 
arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session when 
viewing the information.

====================================================================== 
5) Solution 

Do not view SNMP traps.

======================================================================
