Several vulnerabilities were reported in McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks. A remote user can inject SQL commands.|
Several scripts do not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input before displaying the input [CVE-2013-4883]. A remote user can create a specially crafted URL that, when loaded by a target user, will cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the ePolicy Orchestrator software and will run in the security context of that site. As a result, the code will be able to access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user. Nuri Fattah of NATO/NCIRC reported this vulnerability.
The vendor was notified of the cross-site scripting vulnerabilities on June 12, 2013.
The software does not properly validate user-supplied input. A remote user can supply a specially crafted parameter value to execute SQL commands on the underlying database [CVE-2013-4882]. Sasha Zivojinovic from Gotham Digital Science reported this vulnerability.

A remote user can execute SQL commands on the underlying database.
The vendor has issued a patch for the SQL injection vulnerabilities (see SB10043).|
The vendor plans to issue a fix for the cross-site scripting vulnerabilities in version 4.6.7, tentatively scheduled for release in late Q3 2013.
