Severity Level:

Technical Details & Description:
Multiple persistent input validation vulnerabilities has been discovered in the Telekom T-Systems Cloud Web SSO web-application and backend.
The vulnerability allows remote attackers to inject own malicious script code on the application-side of the vulnerable module or function.

The persistent vulnerabilities are located in the `firstName` and `lastName` input fields of the registration formular. Remote attackers are able
to inject a payload as `firstname` and `lastname` via POST method request on `registration` to manipulate the connected frontend and backend service
of the cloud web sso service. The execution of the name values takes place in the `profile` section, `backend` on preview and in the service `emails`
outgoing through the telekom web-server system. The injection points are the name input fields during the registration for any package and the
execution takes place in the outgoing service emails, the profile and the backend on preview. The attack vector of the vulnerability is persistent
and the request method to inject is POST. The issue poses a significant risk to managers and users because of the persistent inject method used
by the remote attacker.

The basic filter disallows to input special chars. So the request needs to be manipulated within the performed request and not ahead on local input.
Thus finally allows an attacker to bypass the validation to inject a payload for execution in another layer. We used bkm@evolution-sec.com to confirm
the vulnerability in the telekom cloud sso web service.

The security risk of the persistent input validation vulnerability is estimated as medium with a cvss (common vulnerability scoring system) count of 4.3.
Exploitation of the persistent input validation web vulnerability requires low user interaction and a low privilege web-application customer user account.
Successful exploitation of the vulnerability results in session hijacking, persistent phishing attacks, persistent external redirects to malicious source
and persistent manipulation of affected or connected application modules.

Request Method(s):
[+] POST

Vulnerable Service(s):
[+] Telekom Cloud (websso.t-systems.de)

Vulnerable Module(s):
[+] Cloud & Service Registration

Vulnerable Input(s):
[+] Vorname
[+] Nachname

Vulnerable Parameter(s):
[+] firstName
[+] lastName

Affected Module(s):
[+] Frontend (Profile)
[+] Backend (Preview Information)
[+] Serice Emais (Outgoing on Interaction)

Proof of Concept (PoC):
The vulnerability can be exploited by remote attackers with low privilege web-application user account and with low user interaction.
For security demonstration or to reproduce the vulnerability follow the provided information and steps below to continue.

Manual steps to reproduce the vulnerability ...
1. Open the telekom cloud webpage
2. Move to the registration
3. Include your values and an email that you administrate
4. Start a live session tamper for the http protocol
5. Submit the registration and change in the live http request via tamper the name parameters to test payloads
6. Continue the request to receive the server answer 200OK
7. Check the email were the first execution point occurs and then request for example a new password to see the effects
8. In the next step watch the user profile that displays the database credentials
9. Now, moe over as administrator in the backend and approve the information encode for the accounts to watch the execution point
10. Successful reproduce of the persistent remote vulnerability in the telekom cloud sso web service!

Solution - Fix & Patch:
The vulnerability in the cloud sso web service can be patched by a secure parse of the vulnerabel firstName and lastName input fields.
Restrict via disallowing the usage of special chars and script codes within the submit POST method request outside the basic form input.
Parse all output locations in the different layers were the execution takes place ... frontend, backend & outgoing emails.
In the outgoing emails only the dbms header information with the %userdata needs to be parsed to ensure the basic html template is sanitized securly.

Security Risk:
The security risk of the vulnerability in the web-application of the telekom t-systems cloud is estimated as medium. (CVSS 4.3)
