Some vulnerabilities have been discovered in OSSIM, which can be exploited by malicious users to conduct SQL injection attacks and by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.
1) Input passed via the "url" parameter to top.php 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.
2) Input passed via the "time" parameter to forensics/base_qry_main.php is not properly sanitised before being used in a SQL query. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
NOTE: This can further be exploited to conduct cross-site scripting attacks via a SQL error message.
3) Input passed via the "tcp_port" parameter to forensics/base_qry_main.php is not properly sanitised before being used in a SQL query. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
Successful exploitation of the vulnerabilities #2 and #3 requires access rights to the forensics section.
The vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 3.1. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: No official solution is currently available.
