SolarWinds Orion Platform < 2020.2.1 HF2 Multiple Vulnerabilities

high Nessus Plugin ID 144449


An application running on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


According to its self-reported version number, the version of SolarWinds Orion Platform is prior to 2020.2.1 hot fix 2.
It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities:

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the ExecuteVBScript method due to improper validation of a user-supplied string before using it to execute a system call. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary commands with SYSTEM privileges. (CVE-2020-14005)

- An SQL injection (SQLi) privilege escalation vulnerability exists in the WriteToFile method due to improper validation of a user-supplied string used to construct SQL queries. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this issue via SQLi to escalate privileges and reset the password for the Admin user.
- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in ExportToPDF.aspx due to lack of proper validation of a user-supplied path prior to it's use in file operations. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this issue, to disclose potentially sensitive information in the context of SYSTEM. (CVE-2020-27870)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to SolarWinds Orion Platform 2020.2.1 hot fix 2 or later.
