The Vulnerability Laboratory Research Team discovered multiple Web Vulnerabilities in Interspire Email Marketer 6.0.1,
Email Marketing Software.
2012-10-02: Public or Non-Public Disclosure
Product: Email Marketer v6.0.1
A SQL Injection vulnerability is detected in the Interspire Email Marketer v6.0.1, Email Marketing Software.
The vulnerability allows an attacker (remote) or local low privileged user account to execute a SQL commands
on the affected application dbms. The sql injection vulnerability is located in dynamiccontenttags file with
the bound vulnerable id parameter. Successful exploitation of the vulnerability results in dbms & application
compromise. Exploitation requires no user interaction & without privileged user account.
Multiple persistent input validation vulnerabilities are detected in the Interspire Email Marketer v6.0.1, Email
The bugs allow remote attackers to implement/inject malicious script code on the application side (persistent). The
vulnerabilities are located in the user account, user groups, contacts, email campaigns or recent activity module with
vulnerable fullname, groupname, email, content block name and activitylog parameters. Successful exploitation of the
can lead to session hijacking (manager/admin) or stable (persistent) context manipulation. Exploitation requires low
action & privileged web application user account.
[+] Users&Groups -> Create a user account
[+] Users&Groups -> Create a user group
[+] Contacts -> Add contact
[+] Email Campaigns -> Dynamic Content Tags -> Create a Dynamic Content Tag
[+] Recent Activity
[+] Full Name
[+] Group Name
[+] Email Address
[+] Content Block name
[+] All recent activities get executed in the recent activity box
A non-persistent cross site scripting vulnerability is detected in the Interspire Email Marketer v6.0.1, Email
The vulnerability allows remote attackers to hijack website customer, moderator or admin sessions with medium or high
user inter action or local low privileged user account. The vulnerability is located in the dynamiccontenttags module
bound vulnerable action parameter. Successful exploitation of the vulnerability result in account steal, client site
or client-side content request manipulation.
Proof of Concept:
The SQL injection vulnerability can be exploited by remote attackers without user inter action. For demonstration or
The persistent input validation vulnerabilities can be exploited by remote attackers with low or medium required user
& low privileged user account. For demonstration or reproduce ...
The attacker can create a user with injecting a malicious code i.e.,
"<iframe src=http://www.vulnerability-lab.com onload=alert("VL")</iframe>, in the field Full name.
When the admin views the users the code gets executed. The attacker also can change his full name in the settings
and whenever the admin checks the user list, the code gets executed
The attacker can Create a User group and inject a malicious code in the Group name. Whenever the victim lists the user
the code gets executed in the victim browser.
The attacker can inject a malicious code in the server side by adding a contact. The attacker goes to Contacts -> add
and then try to inject a malicious code in the email field. An error message will pop up that the email is invalid. To
this message, the attacker creates a normal user with any email i.e., test () test com After creating the user, the
the user and change the email to the malicious code. The error message will not show up and the code will get executed
user who will list the contacts.
The attacker can inject a malicious code in the server side by creating a content block from Dynamic content tags
The field "block name" is vulnerable. Whenver the victim views the blocks the code gets Executed.
Finally, Any of the activities gets logged in the recent activity module that gets showed in every screen in the web
If the attacker done with persistent malicious attacks any of the previous malicious actions the code will get executed
again in the recent activity module.
The security risk of the remote SQL Injection vulnerability is estimated as critical.
The security risk of the persistent input validation vulnerabilities are estimated as medium(+).
The security risk of the client side cross site scripting vulnerability is estimated as low(+).
