Product Description

EventLog Analyzer carry out logs analysis for all Windows, Linux and Unix
systems, Switches and Routers (Cisco), other Syslog supporting devices, and
applications like IIS, MS SQL. Eventlog analyzer application is capable of
performing real-time log file analysis. Event log files analyzer
application can carry out log file analysis of imported files. The files
can be imported from the archive or from any machine.

event log file analyser application collects, performs log analysis and
displays the event on the EventLog Analyzer Dashboard, in real-time. The
event log report is generated from the analyzed event logs. From the event

Vulnerability Details

Every user has the ability to execute SQL queries through the
"/event/" script, including the default "guest" user. (The SQL
query option is just not visible in the web interface)
Below is the POST request, executed as "guest":

POST /event/ HTTP/1.1
Accept: text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,*/*;q=0.8
Accept-Language: en-US,en;q=0.5
Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate
Connection: keep-alive
Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded
Content-Length: 39


Access to queries starting with "INSERT" or "UPDATE" is denied by default,
however this can be bypassed by doing a select query first, like this:


The included Postgres backend is running with SYSTEM privileges on Windows,
allowing to write files to disk with these privileges.

A Metasploit exploit module will be released shortly.

ManageEngine has provided a patch to fix this issue, the steps to apply/fix
this are as below:

1. Stop the ELA service.
2. Download the zip from
and extract the folders. You would have two folders "EventLogAnalyzerJSP"
and "LogAnalyzerClient" under "o_19q686iqs1sfemdf19e05sqre61". Copy these
two folders and place it under <ELA Home>//lib/ folder.
3. The path of the following files would be as below:

runQuery_jsp.class --> <ELA
RunQuery.class --> <ELA Home>\\lib\\LogAnalyzerClient\\com\\adventnet\\la\

4. Restart the ELA service and check for the issue.
