Vulnerability Note VU#753264
IPSwitch WhatsUp Gold does not validate commands when deserializing XML objects
IPSwitch WhatsUp Gold version 16.3 does not properly validate data when deserializing XML objects sent over SOAP requests.
CWE-502: Deserialization of Untrusted Data - CVE-2015-8261
WhatsUp Gold version 16.3 contains a SOAP request handler named DroneDeleteOldMeasurements. User-controlled data may be passed to the application within a serialized XML object via a SOAP request. This data is later directly included into an SQLite query without being sanitized or properly escaped, allowing an attacker to perform SQL Injection attacks.
An unauthenticated remote attacker may be able to execute SQL queries on the database.
