Russ McRee has discovered a vulnerability in various Snare Agents, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site request forgery attacks.
The applications allow users to perform certain actions via HTTP requests without performing any validity checks to verify the requests. This can be exploited to e.g. change the password or remote listening port by tricking a user into visiting a specially crafted link.
Successful exploitation requires that the web-based configuration capability is turned on.
The vulnerability is reported in the following products and versions:
* Snare for Solaris 3.2.3 and prior
* Snare for Windows 3.1.7 and prior
* Snare for Linux 1.5.0 and prior
* Snare for AIX 1.5.0 and prior
* Snare for Irix 1.4 and prior
* Epilog for Windows 1.5.3 and prior
* Epilog for Unix version 1.2 and prior
