Cisco Prime Infrastructure Input Validation Flaws Let Remote Authenticated Inject SQL Commands and Remote Users Conduct Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
Severity Rating: Medium
- Cisco Prime Infrastructure and Evolved Programmable Network Manager
Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Cisco Prime Infrastructure and they can be exploited by remote attackers to inject SQL commands and conduct cross-site scripting attacks. The vulnerabilities reported are as follows:
· A vulnerability exists because the software does not properly validate user-supplied input. A remote authenticated user can supply a specially crafted parameter value to execute SQL commands on the underlying database.
· The software does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input before displaying the input. A remote user can cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the Cisco Prime Infrastructure software and will run in the security context of that site. As a result, the code will be able to access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.
Users are advised to apply updates.
