Description


Some vulnerabilities, security issues, and a weakness have been reported in various BEA WebLogic products, which can be exploited by malicious users to conduct script insertion attacks, and by malicious people to conduct session fixation, cross-site scripting, or brute force attacks, disclose sensitive information, or to bypass certain security restrictions.

1) An error in the processing of requests within the "HttpClusterServlet" and "HttpProxyServlet" proxy servlets, when configured with the "SecureProxy" parameter, can potentially be exploited to gain access to certain administrative resources that are only accessible to an administrator.

This is related to vulnerability #2 in:
SA25284

* WebLogic Server 7.0 released through Service Pack 7, on all platforms
* WebLogic Server 6.1 released through Service Pack 7, on all platforms


2) Input to unspecified parameters 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.

This is related to vulnerability #6 in:
SA15486

The vulnerability is reported in the following versions of WebLogic Server and WebLogic Express:
* WebLogic Server 10.0 released through Maintenance Pack 1, on all platforms

* WebLogic Server 7.0 released through Service Pack 7, on all platforms.
* WebLogic Server 6.1 released through Service Pack 7, on all platforms.

3) A weakness is caused due to an error in the account lockout, which can be exploited to perform brute force attacks via the servlets "wl_management_internal1/LogfileSearch" (version 7 and 8) and "bea_wls_diagnostics/accessor" (version 9).

The weakness is reported in the following version of WebLogic Server and WebLogic Express:
* WebLogic Server 10.0 released through Maintenance Pack 1, on all platforms
* WebLogic Server 9.2 released through Maintenance Pack 2, on all platforms
* WebLogic Server 9.1 on all platforms
* WebLogic Server 9.0 on all platforms
* WebLogic Server 8.1 released through Service Pack 6, on all platforms
* WebLogic Server 7.0 released through Service Pack 7, on all platforms

4) An error exists in the handling of sessions and can be exploited to hijack a user's session by tricking the user into logging in after following a specially crafted link.

Successful exploitation requires access to the server's console login page.

The vulnerability is reported in the following version of WebLogic Server and WebLogic Express:
* WebLogic Server 10.0, on all platforms
* WebLogic Server 9.2 released through Maintenance Pack 1, on all platforms
* WebLogic Server 8.1 Service Pack 4 through Service Pack 6, on all platforms

5) Unspecified input passed to the WebLogic Server Administration Console is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in an administrative user's browser session in context of an affected site.

The vulnerability is reported in the following version of WebLogic Server and WebLogic Express:
* WebLogic Server 10.0, on all platforms
* WebLogic Server 9.2 released through Maintenance Pack 1, on all platforms
* WebLogic Server 9.1 on all platforms
* WebLogic Server 9.0 on all platforms

6) An unspecified error in the distributed queue feature can be exploited to bypass the security policies defined on a protected distributed queue.

The vulnerability is reported in the following version of WebLogic Server and WebLogic Express:
* WebLogic Server 10 with no maintenance packs, on all platforms
* WebLogic Server 9.2 released through Maintenance Pack 1, on all platforms
* WebLogic Server 9.1 on all platforms
* WebLogic Server 9.0 on all platforms

7) An unspecified error can be exploited to receive messages from a standalone (physical) JMS Topic destination or a member of a secured Distributed Topic member destination.

The vulnerability is reported in the following version of WebLogic Server and WebLogic Express:
* WebLogic Server 10 with no maintenance packs, on all platforms
* WebLogic Server 9.2 released through Maintenance Pack 1, on all platforms
* WebLogic Server 9.1 on all platforms
* WebLogic Server 9.0 on all platforms

8) A security issue in the handling of content portlets can result in users gaining access to content portlets that are restricted.

9) An error in the handling of https sessions in the Portal Administration Console can lead to redirects via http.

The security issues are reported in the following version of WebLogic Portal:
* WebLogic Portal 10.0, on all platforms
* WebLogic Portal 9.2 released through Maintenance Pack 1, on all platforms

10) An unspecified error in the processing of HTML request headers can potentially be exploited to get unauthorised access to certain application servlets.

* WebLogic Server 7.0 released through Service Pack 7, on all platforms
* WebLogic Server 6.1 released through Service Pack 7, on all platforms

11) Input passed to parameters to the NetUI framework 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 context of an affected site.

The vulnerability is reported in the following versions of WebLogic Workshop and BEA Workshop for WebLogic:
* BEA Workshop for WebLogic 10.0, on all platforms
