Synopsis

A web security application hosted on the remote web server has multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

According to its self-reported version number, the remote web server is hosting Symantec Web Gateway before version 5.0.3, which has the following vulnerabilities :

-There are multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities.
(CVE-2012-0296)

- Multiple shell command injection and local file inclusion vulnerabilities exist that could lead to arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2012-0297)

- Unauthenticated users are allowed to read/delete arbitrary files as root. (CVE-2012-0298)

- A file upload vulnerability exists that could lead to arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2012-0299)

A remote, unauthenticated attacker could exploit the code execution vulnerabilities to execute commands as the apache user. After exploitation, obtaining a root shell is trivial.

Solution

Upgrade to Symantec Web Gateway version 5.0.3 or later.
