Vulnerability Note VU#978652

Bomgar Remote Support Portal deserializes untrusted data

Original Release date: 05 May 2015 | Last revised: 05 May 2015

Overview

Bomgar Remote Support version 14.3.1 and possibly earlier versions deserialize untrusted data without sufficient validation, allowing an attacker to potentially execute arbitrary PHP code.

Description

CWE-502: Deserialization of Untrusted Data

Bomgar Remote Support version 14.3.1 and possibly earlier versions deserialize untrusted data without sufficient validation. An unauthenticated attacker can inject arbitrary input to at least one vulnerable PHP file, and authenticated attackers can inject arbitrary input to multiple vulnerable PHP files. When malicious data is deserialized, arbitrary PHP code may be executed in the context of the PHP server process.

Impact

A remote, unauthenticated attacker may be able to execute arbitrary PHP code in the context of the Bomgar Remote Support portal application.
