Technical Details & Description:
A filter bypass and multiple persistent cross site vulnerabilities has been discovered in the FortiVoice v5.x appliance web-application.
The application-side issue allows remote attackers to inject own malicious script codes on the application-side of the affected module.

The vulnerabilities are located in the `match pattern name` input fields of the `Outbound - Outbound - Dailed Number Match` and
`Call Features - Fax - Sending Rules - Dailed Number Match` modules. Local low privileged user accounts and remote attackers are
able to inject via POST method request own malicious script codes in the vulnerable modules. The attack vector of the issue is
persistent on the application-side. The injection point are the vulnerable input fields and the execution point occurs mainly in
the same web modules context.

The validation tries to encode strings on input interaction. To bypass the validation of the fortivoice appliance web-application,
it is required to insert a split char attack via input fields. Use for example %20%20 after that the validation stops and you can execute
an own payload.

The security risk of the application-side cross site web vulnerabilities are estimated as medium with a cvss (common vulnerability
scoring system) count of 3.6. Exploitation of the persistent input validation web vulnerability requires a low privileged
web-application user account but is not limited to and low or medium user interaction. Successful exploitation of the vulnerability
results in session hijacking, persistent phishing attacks, persistent external redirects to malicious source and persistent manipulation
of affected or connected application modules.

Request Method(s):
[+] POST

Vulnerable Module(s):
[+] Outbound - Outbound
[+] Call Features - Fax - Sending Rules

Vulnerable Parameter(s):
[+] name (match pattern)

Affected Module(s):
[+] Dailed Number Match

Proof of Concept (PoC):
The persistent cross site vulnerabilities can be exploited by remote attackers and low privileged web-application user accounts
with low or medium user interaction. For security demonstration or to reproduce the web vulnerability follow the provided
information and steps below to continue.

Vulnerable Location(s):
Outbound - Outbound - Dailed Number Match [Match Pattern - Name]
Call Features - Fax - Sending Rules - Dailed Number Match [Match Pattern - Name]

Solution - Fix & Patch:
The vulnerabilities can be patched by a secure parse and encode of the vulnerable output location context in the affected modules.
Disallow the usage of special chars via restriction to prevent further script code injection attacks with application-side vector.
Encode the parameter inputs of the match pattern name in the two affected modules to finally fix the vulnerabilities.

Note: The vulnerability has been patched (FortiVoice v5.0.5 ) and the updates are available by automated download or
manual via fortinet customer center.

Security Risk:
The security risk of the application-side input validation web vulnerabilities in the appliance web-application are estimated as medium. (CVSS 3.6)
