Description


Some vulnerabilities and a security issue have been reported in Cisco Wireless Control System (WCS), which can be exploited by malicious, local users to gain knowledge of sensitive information, and by malicious people to gain knowledge of sensitive information, conduct cross-site scripting attacks, bypass certain security restrictions and potentially compromise a vulnerable system.

1) An undocumented username and hard-coded password exists in the WCS. This can be exploited to connect to the WCS internal database and to gain access to the configuration information of managed wireless access points.

The security issue has been reported in WCS for Linux and Windows 3.2(40) and prior.

2) Undocumented database username and password are stored in clear text in several WCS files. This can potentially be exploited by local users to gain knowledge of the user credentials and to gain access to the database.

The vulnerability has been reported in WCS for Linux and Windows 3.2(51) and prior.

3) An error within the internal TFTP server allows reading from or writing to arbitrary locations in the filesystem of a WCS system.

Successful exploitation requires that the configured root directory of the TFTP server contains a space character.

The vulnerability has been reported in WCS for Linux and Windows 3.2(51) and prior.

4) Input passed to the unspecified parameter in login page is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.

The vulnerability has been reported in WCS for Linux and Windows 3.2(51) and prior.

5) An access control error within the WCS HTTP server can be exploited to gain access to certain directories, which may contain sensitive information like WCS usernames and directory paths.

The vulnerability has been reported in WCS for Linux and Windows 3.2(51) and prior.

Note: It has also been reported that WCS for Linux and Windows 4.0(1) and prior are installed with a default administrator username root, with a default password of public.


Solution:
Update to WCS for Linux and Windows 3.2(63) or later.
