Security Advisory

UPDATED: 15.07.2019
Added vulnerability #2, changes bulletin severity from Medium to High.

1) Cross-site scripting

Severity: Medium

CVSSv3: 5.5 [CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:C/C:L/I:L/A:N/E:P/RL:O/RC:C] [PCI]

CVE-ID: CVE-2019-13345

CWE-ID: CWE-79 - Improper Neutralization of Input During Web Page Generation ('Cross-site Scripting')

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to perform cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks.

The vulnerability exists due to insufficient sanitization of user-supplied data passed via the  the "user_name" and "auth" parameters to the cachemgr.cgi web module. A remote attacker can trick the victim to follow a specially crafted link and execute arbitrary HTML and script code in user's browser in context of vulnerable website.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability may allow a remote attacker to steal potentially sensitive information, change appearance of the web page, perform phishing and drive-by-download attacks.

Example:

http://[host]/cgi-bin/cachemgr.cgi?host=localhost&port=3128&user_name=admin&operation=authenticate&auth=bG9jYWxob3N0fDE1NTg5NTYzNzJ8YWRtIj48c2NyaXB0PmFsZXJ0KCdYU1MnKTwvc2NyaXB0PmlufGRzZGFkYWE=

Mitigation

2) Heap-based buffer overflow

Severity: High

CVSSv3: 7.7 [CVSS:3.0/AV:A/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H/E:U/RL:O/RC:C] [PCI]

CVE-ID: CVE-2019-12527

CWE-ID: CWE-122 - Heap-based Buffer Overflow

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the target system.

The vulnerability exists due to a boundary error when checking Basic Authentication with HttpHeader::getAuth. A remote attacker can send an overly long authentication string, trigger heap-based buffer overflow and execute arbitrary code on the target system.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability may result in complete compromise of vulnerable system.
