|CVSS SCORE||4.9, (AV:N/AC:L/PR:H/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:N/A:N)|
This vulnerability allows remote attackers to disclose sensitive information on affected installations of Advantech iView. Although authentication is required to exploit this vulnerability, the existing authentication mechanism can be bypassed.
The specific flaw exists within the NetworkServlet endpoint, which listens on TCP port 8080 by default. When parsing the device_get_community and device_set_community elements of the addDeviceTreeItem 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 disclose information in the context of SYSTEM.
Advantech has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More details can be found at:
