Summary

  o Multiple vulnerabilities in the web-based management interface of
    Cisco Finesse could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to conduct a
    server-side request forgery (SSRF) attack or retrieve a cleartext password
    from an affected system.

    For more information about these vulnerabilities, see the Details section
    of this security advisory.

    There are no workarounds that address these vulnerabilities.

Affected Products

  o Vulnerable Products

    These vulnerabilities affect Cisco Finesse. For information about affected
    software releases, consult the Cisco bug IDs at the top of this advisory.

    Products Confirmed Not Vulnerable

    Only products listed in the Vulnerable Products section of this advisory
    are known to be affected by this vulnerability.

Details

  o Two vulnerabilities in the web-based management interface of Cisco Finesse
    could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to conduct a server-side
    request forgery (SSRF) attack or retrieve a cleartext password from an
    affected system.

    The vulnerabilities are not dependent on one another; exploitation of one
    of the vulnerabilities is not required to exploit the other vulnerability.
    In addition, a software release that is affected by one of the
    vulnerabilities may not be affected by the other vulnerability.

    Details about the vulnerabilities are as follows.

    Cisco Finesse HTTP Request Processing Server-Side Request Forgery
    Vulnerability

    A vulnerability in the web-based management interface of Cisco Finesse
    could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a Cisco Finesse
    server to submit an HTTP request to an arbitrary host. This type of attack
    is commonly referred to as a server-side request forgery (SSRF) attack.

    The vulnerability is due to insufficient access controls for the Cisco
    Finesse API that supports gadgets integration. An attacker could exploit
    this vulnerability by submitting a maliciously crafted HTTP request to a
    Cisco Finesse server.

    The CVE ID for this vulnerability is: CVE-2018-0398

    The Security Impact Rating (SIR) for this vulnerability is: Medium

    The Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) Base score for this
    vulnerability is: 5.8

    The Cisco bug ID for this vulnerability is: CSCvg71018

    Cisco Finesse Information Disclosure Vulnerability

    A vulnerability in the web-based management interface of Cisco Finesse
    could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to retrieve a cleartext
    password from an affected system.

    The vulnerability exists because the affected software prefills the
    Password field of the login form for the web-based management interface
    with a password that was previously saved and is stored in an internal
    database for the affected software. An attacker could exploit this
    vulnerability by viewing the HTML source of a login form for the web-based
    management interface of the affected software. A successful exploit could
    allow the attacker to view and retrieve a cleartext password from an
    affected system.

    The CVE ID for this vulnerability is: CVE-2018-0399

    The SIR for this vulnerability is: Medium

    The CVSS Base score for this vulnerability is: 5.3

    The Cisco bug ID for this vulnerability is: CSCvg71044

Workarounds

  o There are no workarounds that address these vulnerabilities.

Fixed Software

  o For information about fixed software releases, consult the Cisco bug ID(s)
    at the top of this advisory.

    When considering software upgrades, customers are advised to regularly
    consult the advisories for Cisco products, which are available from the
    Cisco Security Advisories and Alerts page, to determine exposure and a
    complete upgrade solution.

    In all cases, customers should ensure that the devices to be upgraded
    contain sufficient memory and confirm that current hardware and software
    configurations will continue to be supported properly by the new release.
    If the information is not clear, customers are advised to contact the Cisco
    Technical Assistance Center (TAC) or their contracted maintenance
    providers.

Exploitation and Public Announcements

  o The Cisco Product Security Incident Response Team (PSIRT) is not aware of
    any public announcements or malicious use of the vulnerabilities that are
    described in this advisory.
