McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator contains a vulnerability that could allow an authenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary SQL code or conduct cross-site scripting attacks. Updates are not available.
Multiple vulnerabilities in McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator could allow an authenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary SQL code and conduct a cross-site scripting attacks on the affected application.
The vulnerabilities are due to insufficient sanitization performed on user-supplied input by the affected software. An attacker could exploit this vulnerabilities by persuading a user to visit a malicious URL that is designed to submit crafted input to the affected software. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to add rogue systems to an enterprise ePO server, steal domain credentials, obtain sensitive information associated with the user's current session, upload files, and execute commands on the ePO server.
Proof-of-concept code is publicly available.
McAfee has not confirmed this vulnerability and updated software is not available.
McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator versions 4.6.6 and prior are vulnerable.
Attackers must authenticate to the ePO application before conducting an exploit. This authentication requirement limits the likelihood of a successful exploit.
Vendor announcements are not available.
These vulnerabilities could be exploited to allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system with elevated privileges. Due to the enterprise nature of this product, this may allow the attacker to compromise multiple systems within the environment.
The SQL injection vulnerability is due to improper validation of user-supplied input by the registeredTypeID parameter, which statically registers new users of the showRegisteredTypeDetails.do script in the affected application. An authenticated, remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending malicious requests to the vulnerable script. Processing the malicious requests could cause the application to execute attacker-provided SQL commands in the underlying database. Successful exploitation could allow an attacker to add rogue systems to an enterprise ePO server and execute commands on the ePO server as well as on any systems managed by ePO.
The reflected cross-site scripting vulnerability is due to improper validation of user-supplied input by the uid parameter of the sysDetPanelBoolPie.do, sysDetPanelQry.do, and sysDetPanelSummary.do scripts and in the propKey parameter of the affected application. Successful exploitation could allow an attacker to obtain sensitive information and gain unauthorized access to the application.
