ID CVE-2013-4826
Summary Unspecified vulnerability in HP Intelligent Management Center (iMC) and HP IMC Service Operation Management Software Module allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information via unknown vectors, aka ZDI-CAN-1647.
Vulnerable Configurations
  • HP iMC Service Operation Management Software module
  • cpe:2.3:a:hp:intelligent_management_center
Base: 5.0 (as of 15-10-2013 - 05:22)
  • Subverting Environment Variable Values
    The attacker directly or indirectly modifies environment variables used by or controlling the target software. The attacker's goal is to cause the target software to deviate from its expected operation in a manner that benefits the attacker.
  • Footprinting
    An attacker engages in probing and exploration activity to identify constituents and properties of the target. Footprinting is a general term to describe a variety of information gathering techniques, often used by attackers in preparation for some attack. It consists of using tools to learn as much as possible about the composition, configuration, and security mechanisms of the targeted application, system or network. Information that might be collected during a footprinting effort could include open ports, applications and their versions, network topology, and similar information. While footprinting is not intended to be damaging (although certain activities, such as network scans, can sometimes cause disruptions to vulnerable applications inadvertently) it may often pave the way for more damaging attacks.
  • Exploiting Trust in Client (aka Make the Client Invisible)
    An attack of this type exploits a programs' vulnerabilities in client/server communication channel authentication and data integrity. It leverages the implicit trust a server places in the client, or more importantly, that which the server believes is the client. An attacker executes this type of attack by placing themselves in the communication channel between client and server such that communication directly to the server is possible where the server believes it is communicating only with a valid client. There are numerous variations of this type of attack.
  • Browser Fingerprinting
    An attacker carefully crafts small snippets of Java Script to efficiently detect the type of browser the potential victim is using. Many web-based attacks need prior knowledge of the web browser including the version of browser to ensure successful exploitation of a vulnerability. Having this knowledge allows an attacker to target the victim with attacks that specifically exploit known or zero day weaknesses in the type and version of the browser used by the victim. Automating this process via Java Script as a part of the same delivery system used to exploit the browser is considered more efficient as the attacker can supply a browser fingerprinting method and integrate it with exploit code, all contained in Java Script and in response to the same web page request by the browser.
  • Session Credential Falsification through Prediction
    This attack targets predictable session ID in order to gain privileges. The attacker can predict the session ID used during a transaction to perform spoofing and session hijacking.
  • Reusing Session IDs (aka Session Replay)
    This attack targets the reuse of valid session ID to spoof the target system in order to gain privileges. The attacker tries to reuse a stolen session ID used previously during a transaction to perform spoofing and session hijacking. Another name for this type of attack is Session Replay.
  • Using Slashes in Alternate Encoding
    This attack targets the encoding of the Slash characters. An attacker would try to exploit common filtering problems related to the use of the slashes characters to gain access to resources on the target host. Directory-driven systems, such as file systems and databases, typically use the slash character to indicate traversal between directories or other container components. For murky historical reasons, PCs (and, as a result, Microsoft OSs) choose to use a backslash, whereas the UNIX world typically makes use of the forward slash. The schizophrenic result is that many MS-based systems are required to understand both forms of the slash. This gives the attacker many opportunities to discover and abuse a number of common filtering problems. The goal of this pattern is to discover server software that only applies filters to one version, but not the other.

description This module exploits a lack of authentication and access control in HP Intelligent Management, specifically in the FileDownloadServlet from the SOM component, in order to retrieve arbitrary files with SYSTEM privileges. This module has been tested successfully on HP Intelligent Management Center 5.2_E0401 with SOM 5.2 E0401 over Windows 2003 SP2.

    description The version of the HP Intelligent Management Center Service Operation Management Software Module on the remote is prior to 7.0 E0101. It is therefore, potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities : - An authentication bypass vulnerability exists in the 'euAccountService' servlet that allows arbitrary users to be created without authentication. (CVE-2013-4824) - An information disclosure vulnerability exists in the 'sdFileDownload' servlet that allows for arbitrary file access. (CVE-2013-4826)

    title HP Intelligent Management Center SOM Module < 7.0 E0101 Multiple Vulnerabilities
  • NASL family Misc.
    description The HP Intelligent Management Center (IMC) application running on the remote host is affected by an information disclosure vulnerability in the included IMC Service Operation Management (SOM) Module, specifically within the FileDownload servlet, due to a failure to require authentication. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted request, to disclose the contents of arbitrary files on the system. Note that HP IMC is reportedly affected by additional vulnerabilities; however, Nessus has not tested for these.
