Vendor:
============

Product:
==================
Ws02Carbon v4.4.5

WSO2 Carbon is the core platform on which WSO2 middleware products are
built. It is based on Java OSGi technology, which allows
components to be dynamically installed, started, stopped, updated, and
uninstalled, and it eliminates component version conflicts.
In Carbon, this capability translates into a solid core of common
middleware enterprise components, including clustering, security,
logging, and monitoring, plus the ability to add components for specific
features needed to solve a specific enterprise scenario.



Vulnerability Type:
=================================
Cross Site Request Forgery / DOS



CVE Reference:
==============
CVE-2016-4315




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

The attack involves tricking a privileged user to initiate a request by
clicking a malicious link or visiting an evil webpage to
shutdown WSO2 Servers.

The getSafeText() Function and conditional logic below processes the
"action" parameter with no check for inbound CSRF attacks.

String cookie = (String)
session.getAttribute(ServerConstants.ADMIN_SERVICE_COOKIE);
String action =
CharacterEncoder.getSafeText(request.getParameter("action"));
ServerAdminClient client = new ServerAdminClient(ctx, backendServerURL,
cookie, session);

try {
if ("restart".equals(action)) {
client.restart();
} else if ("restartGracefully".equals(action)) {
client.restartGracefully();
} else if ("shutdown".equals(action)) {
client.shutdown();
} else if ("shutdownGracefully".equals(action)) {
client.shutdownGracefully();
}
} catch (Exception e) {
response.sendError(500, e.getMessage());
return;
}
