I’m Matt Dunn, a lead penetration tester at Raxis. Recently, I discovered an information leakage in ManageEngine Asset Explorer. This is a relatively minor information leakage, as it only leaks the currency that a current vendor uses. Though minor, it could lead to other inferred information such as vendor location based on their currency.
Proof of Concept
The information leakage occurs in the AJaxDomainServlet when given the action of getVendorCurrency. This servlet action does not require authentication, allowing a user to obtain a vendor’s currency with a GET request to a URL similar to the following:
In this example URL, we request the currency for the vendor with the specified vendorId. If the vendor doesn’t have an assigned currency, the dollar symbol is returned. If it does, the vendor’s specific currency identifier is returned, as shown here:
