Zenprise Device Manager CSRF vulnerability

Vulnerability Note VU#584363

Original Release Date: 2011-11-18 | Last Revised: 2012-08-03


The Zenprise Device Manager software is susceptible to a cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerability that may result in the compromise of the fleet of mobile devices managed by the product.


Zenprise Device Manager is a mobile device management (MDM) software package that can be used to manage an enterprise's mobile device fleet. The Zenprise Device manager web interface is vulnerable to cross-site request forgery (CSRF) attacks. A successful CSRF attack against an admin user will allow a remote attacker to run commands as the admin user on any device managed by Zenprise Device Manager.


By tricking a logged in admin user to visit a specially crafted URL, a remote attacker may be able to access any managed device as the admin. The attacker can then perform any action an admin can, including remotely wiping the device.
