Vulnerability identifier: #VU49151
Vulnerability risk: Critical
Exploitation vector: Network
Exploit availability: Yes
The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to bypass authentication process.
The vulnerability exists due to an error in when processing authentication requests within the SolarWinds Orion API. If an attacker appends a
PathInfo parameter of
Skipi18n to a request to a SolarWinds Orion server, SolarWinds may set the SkipAuthorization flag, which may allow the API request to be processed without requiring authentication. This vulnerability could allow a remote non-authenticated attacker to bypass
authentication and execute API commands which may result in a compromise
of the SolarWinds instance.
Note, this vulnerability is dubbed SUPERNOVA and is being exploited in the wild.
