Multiple SQL Injections In Cisco Call Manager User And Admin Interface
Portcullis Security Advisory 07_016
Cisco Unified CallManager
Multiple SQL Injections In User And Admin Interface
Vulnerability discovery and development:
Nico Leidecker of Portcullis Computer Security Ltd discovered this
vulnerability. Further research was then carried out.
System Version: 126.96.36.1990-1 and 5.1, 6.0-6.1.
The Cisco Unified CallManager is vulnerable to multiple SQL injections in the
user interface as well as in the administration interface.
The value of the 'key' parameter used in various GET requests is not properly
sanatized and it is therefore possible to inject SQL queries.
In addition, the application discloses table and attribute names in the
'primaryTable'and 'dispCols' parameters of some POST requests. Another SQL
injection point can be found there.
The following is a simplified POST request:
POST /ccmuser/personaladdressbookFindList.do?%3C%=reqParams%%3E&recCnt=1&colCnt=4 HTTP/1.1
Cookie: JSESSIONID=D650CB2B43F85CD8D260B69A948FA7B5; JSESSIONIDSSO=315C472AA4B90A6765D4EDEFAC24897C Content-Length: 170
Attackers need access to either the user or administration interface.
They then might be able to read data from the database such as password hashes.
Proof of concept exploit code is not required. The injection points are the
'key' or the 'primaryTable' and 'dispCols' parameters.
