  • Accessing Functionality Not Properly Constrained by ACLs
    In applications, particularly web applications, access to functionality is mitigated by the authorization framework, whose job it is to map ACLs to elements of the application's functionality; particularly URL's for web apps. In the case that the administrator failed to specify an ACL for a particular element, an attacker may be able to access it with impunity. An attacker with the ability to access functionality not properly constrained by ACLs can obtain sensitive information and possibly compromise the entire application. Such an attacker can access resources that must be available only to users at a higher privilege level, can access management sections of the application or can run queries for data that he is otherwise not supposed to.
  • Privilege Abuse
    An adversary is able to exploit features of the target that should be reserved for privileged users or administrators but are exposed to use by lower or non-privileged accounts. Access to sensitive information and functionality must be controlled to ensure that only authorized users are able to access these resources. If access control mechanisms are absent or misconfigured, a user may be able to access resources that are intended only for higher level users. An adversary may be able to exploit this to utilize a less trusted account to gain information and perform activities reserved for more trusted accounts. This attack differs from privilege escalation and other privilege stealing attacks in that the adversary never actually escalates their privileges but instead is able to use a lesser degree of privilege to access resources that should be (but are not) reserved for higher privilege accounts. Likewise, the adversary does not exploit trust or subvert systems - all control functionality is working as configured but the configuration does not adequately protect sensitive resources at an appropriate level.

description The self-reported SGOS version installed on the remote Symantec ProxySG device is 6.5.x prior to 6.5.10.8, 6.6.x prior to 6.6.5.14, or 6.7 prior to 6.7.4.107. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities : - An unrestricted file upload vulnerability exists in the ASG and ProxySG management consoles. A malicious appliance administrator can upload arbitrary malicious files to the management console and trick another administrator user into downloading and executing malicious code. (CVE-2016-10258) - A denial-of-service (DoS) vulnerability in the ASG and ProxySG management consoles. A remote attacker can use crafted HTTP/HTTPS requests to cause denial-of-service through management console application crashes. (CVE-2017-13677) - A stored XSS vulnerability exists the ASG and ProxySG management consoles in that a malicious appliance administrator can inject arbitrary JavaScript code in the management console web client application. (CVE-2017-13678)
