Cross Site Scripting

Vendor Patch

CVE Reference(s):

Description


Some vulnerabilities have been reported in various APC Network Management Card (NMC) based products, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting and cross-site request forgery attacks.

1) Input passed to various parameters (e.g. the "login_username" parameter in Forms/login1) 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 the web interface.

2) The application allows users to perform certain actions via HTTP requests without performing any validity checks to verify the request. This can be exploited to e.g. create administrative users by tricking a logged-in administrative user into visiting a malicious web site.

Vulnerability #1 is reported in APC AP7932 Switched Rack PDU version 3.3.4 with application module version 3.7.0. Other APC NMC products and versions may also be affected.


Solution:
Reportedly fixed in AOS firmware version 3.7.2. Contact the vendor for additional details.
