Published: 2014-10-01 11:30:09
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:
AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P

Technical Details:
The Conga project is a management system for remote workstations. It consists of luci, which is a secure web-based front end, and ricci, which is a secure daemon that dispatches incoming messages to underlying management modules. It was discovered that Plone, included as a part of luci, did not properly protect the administrator interface (control panel). A remote attacker could use this flaw to inject a specially crafted Python statement or script into Plone's restricted Python sandbox that, when the administrator interface was accessed, would be executed with the privileges of that administrator user. (CVE-2012-5485) It was discovered that Plone, included as a part of luci, did not properly sanitize HTTP headers provided within certain URL requests. A remote attacker could use a specially crafted URL that, when processed, would cause the injected HTTP headers to be returned as a part of the Plone HTTP response, potentially allowing the attacker to perform other more advanced attacks. (CVE-2012-5486) Multiple information leak flaws were found in the way conga processed luci site extension-related URL requests. A remote, unauthenticated attacker could issue a specially crafted HTTP request that, when processed, would result in unauthorized information disclosure. (CVE-2013-6496) It was discovered that various components in the luci site extension-related URLs were not properly restricted to administrative users. A remote, authenticated attacker could escalate their privileges to perform certain actions that should be restricted to administrative users, such as adding users and systems, and viewing log data. (CVE-2014-3521) It was discovered that Plone, included as a part of luci, did not properly protect the privilege of running RestrictedPython scripts. A remote attacker could use a specially crafted URL that, when processed, would allow the attacker to submit and perform expensive computations or, in conjunction with other attacks, be able to access or alter privileged information. (CVE-2012-5488) It was discovered that Plone, included as a part of luci, did not properly enforce permissions checks on the membership database. A remote attacker could use a specially crafted URL that, when processed, could allow the attacker to enumerate user account names. (CVE-2012-5497) It was discovered that Plone, included as a part of luci, did not properly handle the processing of requests for certain collections. A remote attacker could use a specially crafted URL that, when processed, would lead to excessive I/O and/or cache resource consumption. (CVE-2012-5498) It was discovered that Plone, included ...

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
