Subject: [FD] Two vulnerabilities in Oracle’s iPlanet Web Server (CVE-2020-9315 and CVE-2020-9314)

(Original blog post here:
https://wwws.nightwatchcybersecurity.com/2020/05/10/two-vulnerabilities-in-oracles-iplanet-web-server-cve-2020-9315-and-cve-2020-9314/)

SUMMARY

Two vulnerabilities were discovered in the web administration console
of Oracle’s iPlanet Web Server which allow for sensitive data exposure
and limited injection. The first issue allows read-only access to any
page within the administration console without authentication,
resulting in sensitive data exposure. The second issue allows for
injection of external images which can be used for phishing and social
engineering.

These vulnerabilities have been reported to the vendor (Oracle) but
the vendor will not be issuing security patches because the affected
product is no longer supported. Users are encouraged to implement
other controls to mitigate these vulnerabilities such as restricting
network access to the administration console from the Internet or
switching to a supported platform.

Version 7 has been tested and found to be vulnerable, however, it is
unknown whether earlier versions are affected. Latest versions of
Oracle Glassfish and Eclipse Glassfish application server (v5) share
common code with the affected product, have been tested and do not
seem to be vulnerable. MITRE has assigned CVE-2020-9315 to track the
sensitive data exposure issue and CVE-2020-9314 to track the injection
issue.

ISSUE #1 – SENSITIVE DATA EXPOSURE / ADMIN GUI BYPASS (CVE-2020-9315)

A vulnerability exists in the web administration console of Oracle’s
iPlanet Web Server which makes it possible to read information from
any page within the console without authentication. This can result in
sensitive data exposure of configuration information about the server
including encryption keys, JVM configuration and other data. We did
not perform testing to see whether this vulnerability allows for
changes to be made within the console.

This is accomplished by replacing any URL for any page within the
administration console as follows:
- http://%5Btarget%5D/admingui/admingui/*
with:
- http://%5Btarget%5D/admingui/version/*

To replicate, try the following URLs:
- http://%5Btarget%5D/admingui/version/
- http://%5Btarget%5D/admingui/version/serverTasksGeneral?serverTasksGeneral.GeneralWebserverTabs.TabHref=2

ISSUE #2 – IMAGE INJECTION IN THE ADMIN GUI (CVE-2020-9314)

The “productNameSrc” parameter in the administration console allows
for injection of external images. When used in combination with the
“productNameHeight” and “productNameWidth” parameters, this can be
used to inject an external image into a site to facilitate phishing.
This is due to an incomplete fix for CVE-2012-0516. The earlier fix
added validation against XSS issues but didn’t add validation to make
sure an external image is not loaded.

To replicate, try the following URLs:
- http://%5Btarget%5D/admingui/version/Version?&productNameSrc=http://www.example.com/test.jpg&productNameHeight=500&productNameWidth=500
- http://%5Btarget%5D/admingui/version/Masthead.jsp?productNameSrc=http://www.example.com/test.jpg&productNameHeight=500&productNameWidth=500

VENDOR RESPONSE

Both vulnerabilities have been reported to the vendor (Oracle),
however the vendor doesn’t plan to issue security patches since the
product is no longer supported, as per the following responses:

"Oracle iPlanet Web Server 7.0.x is no longer supported. Please see
the life time support document."

And:

"Thank you for your report regarding Oracle iPlanet Web Server 7.0.x,
which is no longer supported by Oracle. Since Oracle no longer
supports Oracle iPlanet Web Server 7.0.x, the policy is that there is
no coordinated disclosure involving Oracle. Reporters who discover
security vulnerabilities in products that Oracle no longer supports
are free to disclose vulnerability details without Oracle
participation. Oracle does not assign CVEs for products that are no
longer supported. That means, if you want a CVE assigned you will need
to contact Mitre."

CERT/CC concurred with the vendor’s assessment.

MITRE has assigned CVE-2020-9315 to track the sensitivity data
exposure issue, and CVE-2020-9314 to track the injection issue.

AFFECTED VERSIONS AND MITIGATIONS

Version 7 has been tested and found to be vulnerable, however, it is
unknown whether earlier versions are affected. Latest versions of
Oracle Glassfish and Eclipse Glassfish application server (v5) share
common code with the affected product but have been tested and do not
seem to be vulnerable.

Users are encouraged to implement other controls to mitigate these
vulnerabilities such as restricting network access to the
administration console from the Internet or switching to a supported
platform.
