CVE-2022-47523: ManageEngine Password Manager Pro, PAM360 and Access Manager Plus SQL Injection Vulnerability

CVE-2022-47523: ManageEngine Password Manager Pro, PAM360 and Access Manager Plus SQL Injection Vulnerability
CVE-2022-47523: ManageEngine Password Manager Pro, PAM360 and Access Manager Plus SQL Injection Vulnerability

Zoho patches a newly disclosed high-severity SQL injection flaw in several ManageEngine products; attackers have historically targeted several ManageEngine products over the last three years.

Background

On December 29, Zoho’s ManageEngine published an advisory for a newly disclosed vulnerability in its Password Manager Pro, PAM360 and Access Manager Plus products.

CVE Description Severity*
CVE-2022-47523 SQL Injection Vulnerability High

*Severity rating was assigned by ManageEngine. An official CVSSv3 score has not been provided at the time of publication.

Analysis

CVE-2022-47523 is a SQL injection (SQLi) vulnerability in ManageEngine Password Manager Pro, PAM360 and Access Manager Plus. The vulnerability exists due to the improper validation of user-supplied input. An attacker could exploit this flaw by sending a specially crafted request to a vulnerable server. Successful exploitation would allow an attacker to execute arbitrary queries and read or modify database table entries. While ManageEngine did not assign a CVSSv3 score for the flaw at the time this post was published, they did categorize the severity of the flaw as High, and advised that its customers update affected products immediately.

In September 2022, ManageEngine patched CVE-2022-40300, which they classified as “multiple SQL injection vulnerabilities” in the same products as CVE-2022-47523. Researchers at Trend Micro's Zero Day Initiative published a blog post based on a writeup for CVE-2022-40300.

Interestingly, ManageEngine included a message in its advisory for CVE-2022-47523 that, due to the severity of the vulnerability, customers should apply patches immediately; however no such message appeared in its advisory for CVE-2022-40300.

Attackers recently targeted Password Manager Pro, PAM360 and Access Manager Plus

In September 2022, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) warned that CVE-2022-35405, a remote code execution flaw in the same ManageEngine products: Password Manager Pro, PAM360 and Access Manager Plus, had been exploited in the wild. It was added to its Known Exploited Vulnerabilities (KEV) catalog on September 22, 2022.

Historical targeting of ManageEngine products

ManageEngine products like Desktop Central, ServiceDesk Plus and ADSelfService Plus have been targeted by attackers over the last three years:

CVE Affected Products Disclosure Date
CVE-2019-8394 ServiceDesk Plus February 2019
CVE-2020-10189 Desktop Central March 2020
CVE-2021-37415 ServiceDesk Plus July 2021
CVE-2021-40539 AdSelfService Plus September 2021
CVE-2021-44077 ServiceDesk Plus September 2021
CVE-2021-44515 Desktop Central December 2021

Although the likelihood for exploitation is unclear, we strongly encourage organizations that use the affected ManageEngine products to apply the available patches as soon as possible.
