Affected Products:
Barracuda Networks
Product: SSL VPN Appliance v680 -



Multiple non persistent cross site scripting vulnerabilities are detected in Barracuda SSL VPN 680 v2.2.2.115 appliance application.
The vulnerability allows remote attackers to hijack website customer, moderator or admin sessions with high required
user inter action. The bugs are located in the fileSystem.do, showUserResourceCategories.do,launchAgent.do files with the bound
vulnerable policyLaunching, resourcePrefix, path & return-To parameters. Successful exploitation can result in account steal,
phishing & client-side content request manipulation.

Vulnerable Module(s):
[+] showUserResourceCategories.do&messageResourcesKey=resourceCategory
[+] fileSystem.do?launchId=l52ca6d&actionTarget=list&path=
[+] launchAgent.do

Vulnerable Parameter(s):
[+] policyLaunching & resourcePrefix
[+] list&path
[+] return-To

Proof of Concept:
The client side cross site scripting vulnerabilities can be exploited by remote attackers with medium or high required user inter action.
For demonstration or reproduce ...

%2FshowUserResourceCategories.do&messageResourcesKey=resourceCategory&actionPath=[NON-PERSISTENT SCRIPT CODE!]

https://sslvpn.[SERVER]/[FILE].do?[VALUE #1]=l52ca6d&[VALUE #2]=[VALUE #3]&[PATH LISTING]=smb/Sales%20Folder/Opt/[NON-PERSISTENT SCRIPT CODE!]


https://sslvpn.[SERVER]/launchAgent.do?launchId=l3ce418&returnTo=[NON-PERSISTENT SCRIPT CODE!]

The security risk of the non-persistent cross site scripting vulnerabilities are estimated as medium(-).
