Ipswitch WhatsUp Gold < 16.5.0 WrFreeFormText.asp sUniqueID Parameter Blind SQLi (credentialed)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 97140
SynopsisAn application installed on the remote host is affected by a SQL injection vulnerability
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version number, the Ipswitch WhatsUp Gold application installed on the remote host is prior to 16.5.0. It is, therefore, affected by a SQL injection vulnerability within file WrFreeFormText.asp due to improper sanitization of user-supplied input to the 'sUniqueID' parameter and the 'find device' field. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this issue to inject or manipulate SQL queries in the back-end database, resulting in the manipulation or disclosure of arbitrary data.
Note that this issue was tested only on version 16.4.1 but is believed to affect all previous versions.
SolutionUpgrade to Ipswitch WhatsUp Gold version 16.5.0 or later.
