Sow Ching Shiong has discovered multiple vulnerabilities in HP Power Manager, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site request forgery and cross-site scripting attacks.
1) The application allows users to perform certain actions via HTTP requests without performing any validity checks to verify the requests. This can be exploited to e.g. create an arbitrary user with administrative privileges if a logged-in administrative user visits a malicious web site.
2) Input passed to the "logType" parameter in Contents/exportlogs.asp, "Id" parameter in Contents/pagehelp.asp, "SORTORD" parameter in Contents/applicationlogs.asp (when "SORTCOL", "TIME", and "ITEMSPERPAGE" are set to any value), and "SORTCOL" parameter in Contents/applicationlogs.asp (when "SORTORD", "TIME", and "ITEMSPERPAGE" are set to any value) 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 vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 4.3.2. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Do not browse untrusted sites or follow untrusted links while being logged-in to the application.
