CVE Reference(s):

Description


Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Cumin, which can be exploited by malicious users to bypass certain security restrictions, conduct SQL injection attacks, and cause a DoS (Denial of Service) and by malicious people to disclose potentially sensitive information, conduct brute force, cross-site scripting, and cross-site request forgery attacks.

1) A weakness in the session keys generation functionality may result in keys being predictable.

2) Access to web pages, export functionality, and image viewing is not properly restricted and can be exploited to view potentially sensitive content.

3) Certain unspecified input 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.

4) Input passed via the agent variable is not properly sanitised before being used in a SQL query. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.

5) An error when handling requests for images can be exploited to cause an out-of-memory condition by requesting an overly large image size.

6) 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. execute a command if a logged-in user visits a malicious web site.

7) An error exists related to job attribute changes.
