~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Overview:

The software solution perfact::mpa is a software architecture that, for
instance, is used to build web applications for the secure and reliable
remote maintenance of machines via the Internet (see [1]).

According to the manufacturer, remote control software built with
perfact::mpa impresses through the following features:

* location-independent and central monitoring,
* maintenance and error management,
* authorized remote access, and
* integrated documentation of incidents and services.

Due to improper input validation, the web application perfact::mpa is
vulnerable to reflected cross-site scripting attacks.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Vulnerability Details:

SySS GmbH found out that the request new user and translation 
functionalities of the web application perfact::mpa are prone to reflected
cross-site scripting attacks.

This cross-site scripting vulnerability allows an attacker to send a
manipulated link to his victim in order to execute arbitrary JavaScript
code in the context of his victim's web browser.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Proof of Concept (PoC):

1) NewAppUserReq (request new user functionality)
 
The following URL is an example of an attack vector exploiting a 
reflected cross-site scripting vulnerability via the parameter
"no_user_name" of the request new user functionality:

https://<HOST>/<PATH>/MPA2/MPA2/Open/NewAppUserReq/index_html?no_user=1
&no_user_name=<script>alert("SySS XSS!")</script>


2) i18n_wrapper_call (translation functionality)

The following URL is an example for an attack vector exploiting a 
reflected cross-site scripting vulnerability via the parameter
"content" of the translation functionality (i18n_wrapper_call):

https://<HOST>/<PATH>/i18n_wrapper_call
?content=%3Cscript%3Ealert%28%22SySS%20XSS!%22%29%3C/script%3E

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Solution:

According to information by the PerFact Innovation GmbH & Co. KG, the
described security issue has been fixed in PerFact DB_Utils (toolkit)
software version 3.2.

Please contact the manufacturer for further information or support.
