|CVSS SCORE||9.8, (AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H)|
This vulnerability allows remote attackers to bypass authentication on affected installations of Advantech iView. Authentication is not required to exploit this vulnerability.
The specific flaw exists within the NetworkServlet endpoint, which listens on TCP port 8080 by default. When parsing the restore_filename element of the restoreDatabase action, the process does not properly validate a user-supplied string before using it to construct SQL queries. An attacker can leverage this vulnerability to bypass authentication on the system.
Advantech has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More details can be found at:
