Vulnerability 1 - Denial of Service
========================================================================

Vulnerability Type: XML Entity Expansion [CWE-776]
CVE-ID: CVE-2014-8875
CVSSv2 Base Score: 5 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P)
========================================================================

Description
-----------
Similar vulnerabilities have been discovered and reported earlier in
2014 for other PHP applications, i.e. Drupal and WordPress. It has been
discovered that the Revive Adserverâ??s XML-RPC implementation might be
vulnerable to the same kind of attacks.

A remote attacker can send specifically crafted payloads to the XML-RPC
endpoints of a Revive Adserver instance in an attempt to consume the
server resources (CPU and memory) and ultimately lead to the application
becoming unavailable or unresponsive (denial of service).

Details
-------
Revive Adserver XML-RPC servers, available both in the delivery engine
(/www/delivery/[ad]xmlrpc.php, /adxmlrpc.php) and the API endpoints
(/www/api/v2/xmlrpc/, /www/api/v1/xmlrpc/*.php) might be vulnerable to
certain types of XML entity expansion attacks, also depending on the
libxml2 version available on the system.

========================================================================

Description

A Cross-Site Scripting vulnerability was recently discovered and
reported by High-Tech Bridge Security Research Lab (

Input passed via the "refresh_page" GET parameter to
"/www/admin/report-generate.php" script is not properly sanitised before
being returned to the user.
