PR09-15: XSS injection vulnerability within HP System Management
Homepage (Insight Manager)

Vulnerability found: 11th October 2009

Severity: Medium


A XSS vulnerability has been found within HP System Management; Arising
from insufficient input filtering.
By using a specially-crafted link, and tricking the victim into clicking
on it, an attacker can perform malicious attacks such as the following:

- Hijack user accounts by stealing the victim's cookies that are
assigned to the victim's browser by the vulnerable website

- Hijack user accounts by injecting a "fake" html form on the html
rendered by the victim's web browser

- Redirect the victim to a malicious third-party website which would
perform a phishing attack to steal the user credentials or exploit a
vulnerability (i.e.: buffer overflow) on the victim's web browser in
order to compromise the victim's workstation


Authentication is normally needed, unless system has been configured to
support anonymous autologin.

Vulnerable Parameter:

- servercert

Successfully tested on:
Version v3.0.0.64
Version v3.0.0.68
version v3.0.2.77

Tested on Windows 2008 64bit and Centos/Red Hat enterprise
Hardware Proliant DL380 G5 and DL360 G5

Proof of concept:



Attackers can force the victim's web browser to perform XSS/HTML
injection in the security context of the vulnerable site in order to
gather data from users who visit a page within the target site.


HP have issued a fix, download the appropiate update for your operating
system ensuring the sytem management agent is ay least version
or above.
