Some vulnerabilities have been reported in OSSIM, which can be exploited by malicious users to conduct SQL injection attacks, and by malicious people to disclose potentially sensitive information and conduct cross-site scripting attacks.
1) Input passed to the "id_document" parameter in repository/repository_document.php, repository/repository_links.php, and repository/repository_editdocument.php, the "group" parameter in policy/getpolicy.php, and to the "name" parameter in host/newhostgroupform.php and potentially other scripts is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
Successful exploitation requires valid user credentials.
2) Input passed to the "option" parameter of the indexing script 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.
3) The application does not properly restrict access to the graphs/alarms_events.php and host/draw_tree.php scripts, which can be exploited to disclose potentially sensitive information.
The vulnerabilities are reported in version 2.1 and 2.1.1. Prior versions may also be affected.
Solution: Reportedly fixed in version 2.1.2.
