Introduction:
=============
The FortiGate series of multi-threat security systems detect and eliminate the most damaging, content-based threats 
from email 
and Web traffic such as viruses, worms, intrusions, inappropriate Web content and more in real time - without degrading 
network performance.

Ranging from the FortiGate-30 series for small offices to the FortiGate-5000 series for large enterprises, service 
providers and 
carriers, the FortiGate line combines the FortiOS™ security operating system with FortiASIC processors and other 
hardware to provide 
a comprehensive and high-performance array of security and networking functions including:

    * Firewall, VPN, and Traffic Shaping
    * Intrusion Prevention System (IPS)
    * Antivirus/Antispyware/Antimalware
    * Web Filtering
    * Antispam
    * Application Control (e.g., IM and P2P)
    * VoIP Support (H.323. and SCCP)
    * Layer 2/3 routing
    * Multiple WAN interface options

FortiGate appliances provide cost-effective, comprehensive protection against network, content, and application-level 
threats - including 
complex attacks favored by cybercriminals - without degrading network availability and uptime. FortiGate platforms 
incorporate sophisticated 
networking features, such as high availability (active/active, active/passive) for maximum network uptime, and virtual 
domain (VDOM) 
capabilities to separate various networks requiring different security policies.

Abstract:
=========
1.1
Vulnerability-Lab Team discovered multiple persistent Web Vulnerabilities on the FortiGate UTM Appliance Application.

1.2
Vulnerability-Lab Team discovered multiple non-persistent Web Vulnerabilities on the FortiGate UTM Appliance 
Application.


Report-Timeline:
================
2012-01-27:     Public or Non-Public Disclosure


Status:
========
Published


Affected Products:
==================

Exploitation-Technique:
=======================
Remote


Severity:
=========
High


Details:
========
1.1
Multiple input validation vulnerabilities(persistent) are detected on FortGate UTM Appliance Series. Remote attacker 
can include (persistent) 
malicious script code to manipulate specific customer/admin requests. The vulnerability allows an local low privileged 
attacker to  manipulate 
the appliance(application) via persistent script code inject. 

It is also possible to hijack customer sessions via persistent script code execution on application side. Successful 
exploitation can also 
result in content/module request manipulation, execution of persistent malicious script code, session hijacking, 
account steal & phishing.


Vulnerable Module(s): (Persistent)
                                                [+] Endpoint => Monitor => Endpoint Monitor
                                                [+] Dailup List
                                                [+] Log&Report => Display

                                                ../ive3.png


1.2
Multiple input validation vulnerabilities(non-persistent) are detected on FortGate UTM Appliance Series. The 
vulnerability allows remote 
attackers to hijack admin/customer sessions with required user inter action (client-side). Successful exploitation 
allows to phish user accounts,
redirect over client side requests or manipulate website context on client-side browser requests.

Vulnerable Module(s): (Non-Persistent)
                                                [+] Endpoint -> NAC -> Application Database -> Listings
                                                [+] List field sorted

                
                        
Picture(s):
                                                ../ive1.png


Proof of Concept:
=================
The vulnerabilities can be exploited by remote attackers with or without user inter action. For demonstration or 
reproduce  ...

poc: => http://www.vulnerability-lab.com/get_content.php?id=144


Solution:
=========
1.1
To fix/patch the persistent input validation vulnerabilities restrict the input fields & parse the input.
Locate the vulnerable area(s) reproduce the bugs &  parse the output after a malicious(test) insert.
Setup a filter or restriction mask to prevent against future persistent input validation attacks.


1.2
To fix the client side input validation vulnerability parse the vulnerable request by filtering the input & cleanup the 
output.
Set a input restriction or configure whitelist/filter to stop client side requests and form a secure exception-handling 
around.


Risk:
=====
1.1
The security risk of the persistent vulnerabilities are estimated as high because of multiple persistent input 
validation vulnerabilities on different modules. 

1.2
The security risk of the non-persistent cross site requests are estimated as low because of required user inter-action 
to hijack a not expired session.
