BASE < 1.2.5 Authentication Bypass

High

Synopsis

The remote host is running a PHP application that is vulnerable to an authentication bypass attack.

Description

The remote host is running BASE, a web-based tool for analyzing alerts from one or more SNORT sensors. The version of BASE installed on the remote host is earlier than 1.2.5. Such versions are reportedly fail to sufficiently validate 'user', 'role', or passwords against the database in the 'readRoleCookie()' function of the 'includes/base_auth.inc/php' script. An attacker could exploit this in order to bypass authentication and gain unauthorized access to the application.

Solution

Upgrade to BASE version 1.2.5
