Advantech WebAccess < 7.0-2011.12.20 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 9955


The detected version of Advantech WebAccess may be affected by multiple attack vectors.


The installed version of Advantech WebAccess is prior to 7.0-2011.12.20 and is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A flaw exists that allows a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack. This flaw exists because the program does not validate unspecified input before returning it to users. This may allow a remote attacker to create a specially crafted request that would execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session within the trust relationship between their browser and the server. (OSVDB 124949)
- Multiple flaws exist that may allow carrying out SQL injection attacks as unspecified input is not properly sanitized. This may allow a remote attacker to inject or manipulate SQL queries in the back-end database, allowing for the manipulation or disclosure of arbitrary data. (OSVDB 124950)


Upgrade to Advantech WebAccess version 7.0-2011.12.20 or later.
