Vulnerability 1 - Denial of Service
========================================================================
Vulnerability Type:    XML Entity Expansion [CWE-776]
CVE-ID:                CVE-2014-8875
CVSSv2 Base Score:     5 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P)
========================================================================

Description
-----------
Similar vulnerabilities have been discovered and reported earlier in 2014 for other PHP applications, i.e. Drupal and WordPress. It has been discovered that the Revive Adserver’s XML-RPC implementation might be vulnerable to the same kind of attacks.

A remote attacker can send specifically crafted payloads to the XML-RPC endpoints of a Revive Adserver instance in an attempt to consume the server resources (CPU and memory) and ultimately lead to the application becoming unavailable or unresponsive (denial of service).


Details
-------
Revive Adserver XML-RPC servers, available both in the delivery engine (/www/delivery/[ad]xmlrpc.php, /adxmlrpc.php) and the API endpoints (/www/api/v2/xmlrpc/, /www/api/v1/xmlrpc/*.php) might be vulnerable to certain types of XML entity expansion attacks, also depending on the libxml2 version available on the system.

CVSSv2 Base Score:     4.3 (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N)
Also known as:         HTB23242
========================================================================

Description
-----------
A Cross-Site Scripting vulnerability was recently discovered and reported by High-Tech Bridge Security Research Lab ( https://www.htbridge.com/ ).

A remote attacker can trick logged-in user to open a specially crafted link and execute arbitrary HTML and script code in browser in context of the vulnerable website.


Details
-------
Input passed via the "refresh_page" GET parameter to "/www/admin/report-generate.php" script is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user.

Please see High-Tech Bridge's own advisory for more information.
