Tivoli Provisioning Manager Express for Software Distribution Multiple SQL Injection Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 6398


The remote web application is affected by multiple SQL injection vulnerabilities.


The remote web server hosts Tivoli Provisioning Manager Express for Software Distribution, a web-based application for distributing software.

Tivoli Provisioning Manager Express for Software Distribution fails to properly sanitize user supplied input to the following servlets :

- Printer.getPrinterAgentKey() in the SoapServlet servlet

- User.updateUserValue() in the register.do servlet

- User.isExistingUser() in the logon.do servlet

- Asset.getHWKey() in the CallHomeExec servlet

- Asset.getMimeType() in the getAttachment servlet

An unauthenticated, remote attacker, can leverage these issues to manipulate database queries, leading to disclosure of sensitive information, attacks against the underlying database, and the like.


There is no replacement for Tivoli Provisioning Manager Express for Software Distribution. IBM recommends installing Tivoli Endpoint Manager for Lifecycle Management v8.1.
