Cisco Response

This is the Cisco PSIRT response to the statements made by Jake Reynolds and FishNet Security in his advisory: Input Validation/Output Encoding Vulnerabilities in Cisco CallManager Allow Script Injection Attacks. The original email/advisory is available at http://lists.grok.org.uk/pipermail/full-disclosure/2006-June/047015.html.

This issue is being tracked by Cisco Bug ID CSCsb68657. We would like to thank Jake Reynolds of FishNet Security for reporting this issue to us.

We greatly appreciate the opportunity to work with researchers on security vulnerabilities, and welcome the opportunity to review and assist in product reports.

Additional Information

The attacks described in the report manipulate a Cross Site Scripting (XSS) weakness in the web interface of the Cisco CallManager. XSS attacks of this nature rely on intervention of a privileged user and typically attempt to manipulate or trick such a user into clicking on an HTTP URL (typically embedded in an email or HTTP web page).

Cisco recommends that users take care when clicking on URLs and validate the URL being accessed is indeed the site you intend to browse. Checking the HTML source of a web page or email will reveal the true destination of a link.

There are no workarounds that will mitigate this vulnerability.

Cisco has released fixed software for the following supported CallManager trains:

Cisco is scheduled to release fixed software for the following supported CallManager trains:

  • 4.3(1)
  • 3.3(5)SR3
