Zabbix < 1.8.18rc1 / 2.0.9rc1 / 2.1.7 Multiple SQL Injections

medium Nessus Plugin ID 70497


The remote web application may be affected by multiple SQL injection vulnerabilities.


According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Zabbix listening on the remote host is a version prior to 1.8.18rc1 / 2.0.9rc1 / 2.1.7. It is, therefore, potentially affected by multiple SQL injection vulnerabilities. The following API methods and parameters are reportedly affected :

- alert.get parameters : time_from, time_till
- event.get parameters : object, source, eventid_from, eventid_till
- graphitem.get parameter : type
- graph.get parameters : type
- graphprototype.get parameter : type
- history.get parameters : time_from, time_till
- trigger.get parameters : lastChangeSince, lastChangeTill, min_severity
- triggerprototype.get parameter : min_severity
- usergroup.get parameter : status

Additionally, code used to add objects such as graphs or maps to favorites is reportedly also affected by SQL injection attacks. The 'Dashboard', 'Graphs', 'Maps', 'Latest data', and 'Screens' pages in the 'Monitoring' section are reported to be affected.

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied on the version in the Zabbix login page.


Update Zabbix to version 1.8.18rc1 / 2.0.9rc1 / 2.1.7 or later.
