-- Vulnerability Details:
This vulnerability allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary SQL into
the backend database on vulnerable installations of Symantec IM Manager.
Authentication is not required to exploit this vulnerability.

The specific flaw exists within the IM Manager interface exposed by the
web server which listens by default on TCP port 80. The
rdpageimlogic.aspx file does not validate the rdReport variable when
parsing requests. It parses SQL statements from the file pointed to by
this variable. A remote attacker can abuse this behavior to inject
arbitrary SQL into the backend database.

Symantec has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More
