Vulnerabilities
---------------

## Java RMI Remote Code Execution (CVE-2016-9498)
ManageEngine Applications Manager allow unserialization of unsafe Java objects. The vulnerability can be exploited by remote user without authentication and it allows to execute remote code compromising the application as well as the operating system. As Application Manager's RMI registry is running with privileges of system administrator, by exploiting this vulnerability an attacker gains highest privileges on the underlying operating system.

## SQL Injection (CVE-2016-9488)
An unauthenticated user is able to access the URL /servlet/MenuHandlerServlet, which is vulnerable to SQL injection. Note that among others, an attacker is able to extract users' password hashes, which are MD5 hashes without salt. Depending on used database type and its configuration, an adversary can also execute operating system commands using SQL queries.

## Authorization Bypass / Privilege Escalation (CVE-2016-9489)
Authenticated user is able to alter all of their own properties, including own group, i.e. changing their group to one with higher privileges like "ADMIN". A user is also able to change properties of another user, e.g. change another user's password.

## Reflected Cross-Site Scripting (CVE-2016-9490)
Applications Manager is prone to Cross-Site Scripting vulnerability in parameter LIMIT, in URL path /DiagAlertAction.do?REQTYPE=AJAX&LIMIT=1233. Note that URL is also available without authentication.

## XML eXternal Entity (CVE-2016-9491)
The vulnerability allows authenticated user, who is able to access /register.do page (most likely limited to administrator), to browse the filesystem and read the system files, including Applications Manager configuration, stored private keys, etc. By default Application Manager is running with administrative privileges, therefore it is possible to access every directory on the underlying operating system.
