Product & Service Introduction:
===============================
While most businesses now have some type of anti-spam protection, many must deal with cumbersome 
management, frustrated users, inflexible solutions, and a higher-than-expected total cost of ownership. 
SonicWALL® Email Security can help. Elegantly simple to deploy, manage and use, award-winning SonicWALL 
Email Security solutions employ a variety of proven and patented technology designed to block spam and 
other threats effectively, easily and economically. With innovative protection techniques for both 
inbound and outbound email plus unique management tools, the Email Security platform delivers superior 
email protection today—while standing ready to stop the new attacks of tomorrow.

SonicWALL Email Security can be flexibly deployed as a SonicWALL Email Security Appliance, as a software 
application on a third party Windows® server, or as a SonicWALL Email Security Virtual Appliance in a 
VMW® environment. The SonicWALL Email Security Virtual Appliance provides the same powerful protection as a 
traditional SonicWALL Email Security appliance, only in a virtual form, to optimize utilization, 
ease migration and reduce capital costs.

====================
DELL SonicWall
Product: EMail Security Appliance Application 7.4.5.1393


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


Severity Level:
===============
Medium


Technical Details & Description:
================================
Multiple persistent input validation web vulnerabilities has been discovered in the official Dell SonicWall EMail 
Security Appliance v7.4.6 Web-Application.
The vulnerability allows remote attackers or low privileged user accounts to inject own malicious script codes via POST 
method request to compromise the 
application or user session data/information.

The first vulnerability is located in the `filename` value of the `settings_advanced.html` file. Remote attackers and 
low privileged application user accounts 
are able to inject own malicious script codes to the application-side of the `Advanced Settings - Patch hochladen > 
Patch-Datei` module. Attackers can manipulate 
the file upload POST method request by tampering the session. Next to tampering the session the attacker exchange the 
file name with a malicious script code 
as payload. In the next step the website reloads the next firmware upgrade page (wait.html) with the file details. The 
execute of the injected script code 
via POST method request occurs at the location of the listed file name value. The security risk of the persistent 
validation web vulnerability is estimated 
as medium with a cvss (common vulnerability scoring system) count of 3.5(-).

The second vulnerability is located in the file name value of the settings_upload_dlicense.html file. Remote attackers 
and low privileged application user accounts 
are able to inject own malicious script codes to the application-side of the Lizenz Verwaltung - Lizenzen Upload 
module. The request method is POST and the attack 
vector is persistent. The execute occurs in the exception context of the license update page module. The security risk 
of the persistent validation web 
vulnerability is estimated as medium with a cvss (common vulnerability scoring system) count of 3.0(+).

Exploitation of both vulnerabilities requires to bypass the regular validation of the web application appliance. To 
bypass the filter remote attackers can inject two 
payloads with a split in the middle. The validation encodes the first injected payload and the second after the split 
executes the code.
 
Exploitation of the remote web vulnerabilities requires a privileged user account without user interaction or a remote 
user with medium to high user interaction.
Successful exploitation of the persistent web vulnerabilities results in session hijacking, persistent external 
redirects, persistent phishing and persistent 
manipulation of vulnerable connected or affected modules.

Request Method:
                                [+] POST

Vulnerable Module:
                                [+] Advanced Settings - Patch hochladen > Patch-Datei (settings_advanced.html)
                                [+] Lizenz Verwaltung - Lizenzen Upload > (settings_upload_dlicense.html)

Vulnerable Parameter(s):
                                [+] file name

Affected Module(s):
                                [+] Firmware Update - Waiting Page (wait.html)
                                [+] License Update Page (exception)

Affected Version(s):
                                [+] 7.4.6

Affected Appliance Model(s):
                                [+] Dell SonicWall EMail Security Appliance Web Application - All Models


Proof of Concept (PoC):
=======================
The two persistent input validation web vulnerabilities can be exploited by remote attackers with low privileged email 
security application user account and 
low user interaction or without privileged web-application user account on client-side via POST inject. For security 
demonstration or to reproduce the 
vulnerability follow the provided information and steps below.

Solution - Fix & Patch:
=======================
Both vulnerabilities can be patched by a secure parse and encode of the file name value in the 2 affected upload POST 
method requests.
Filter and encode also in the wait.html and license exception the vulnerable output values even if the input is still 
parsed.


SonicWall Solution:
============
We recommend existing users of Dell SonicWALL Email Security upgrade to version 7.4.6 to prevent this cross-site script 
injection from being executed by unauthorized users.
Email Security 7.4.6 is available for download from www.mysonicwall.com. Users should log into mySonicWALL and click on 
Downloads > Download Center in the navigation panel
in the left-hand navigation, then select “Email Security” in the Software Type drop down menu.


Security Risk:
==============
The security risk of the persistent and non persistent post inject web vulnerabilities are estimated as medium.
