Title: IBM System Storage DS Storage Manager Profiler Multiple Vulnerabilities
Advisory ID: ZSL-2012-5094
Type: Local/Remote
Impact: Exposure of System Information, Exposure of Sensitive Information, Manipulation of Data, Cross-Site Scripting
Risk: (3/5)
Release Date: 20.06.2012
Through its extraordinary flexibility, reliability, and performance, the IBM® System Storage® series is designed to manage a broad scope of storage workloads that exist in today’s complex data center and do it effectively and efficiently. This flagship IBM disk system can bring simplicity to your storage environment by supporting a mix of random and sequential I/O workloads for a mix of interactive and batch applications, regardless of whether they are running on one of today’s popular distributed server platforms or on the mainframe.
IBM System Storage DS Storage Manager Profiler suffers from an SQL Injection and a Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability. Input passed via the GET parameter 'selectedModuleOnly' in '' script is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user or used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code. The GET parameter 'updateRegn' in the '' script is vulnerable to a XSS issue where the attacker can execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.
