Vulnerability Note VU#950795 
Trend Micro Control Manager adhoc query vulnerability

Original Release date: 27 Sep 2012 | Last revised: 27 Sep 2012


Trend Micro Control Manager fails to properly filter user-supplied input 
within the ad hoc query module which could allow an attacker to upload and 
execute arbitrary code against the system. 


CWE-89: Improper Neutralization of Special Elements used in an SQL Command 
('SQL Injection')

Trend Micro Control Manager does not properly filter user-supplied input 
within the ad hoc query module. The successful exploitation of this 
vulnerability could potentially result in arbitrary SQL command input to the 
backend database. A remote attacker can execute SQL commands to upload and 
execute arbitrary code against the system. 


An attacker with access to the Trend Micro Control Manager web interface can 
conduct a sql injection attack, which could be used to result in information 
leakage, arbitrary code execution and/or denial of service. 


The vendor has stated that these vulnerabilities have been addressed in Trend
Micro Control Manager version 5.5 and 6.0 critical patches.

Users of Trend Micro Control Manager version 5.5 are advised to apply 
Critical Patch - Build 1823. 

Users of Trend Micro Control Manager version 6.0 are advised to apply 
Critical Patch - Build 1449.

Restrict access

As a general good security practice, only allow connections from trusted hosts
and networks. Note that restricting access does not prevent XSS, CSRF, or SQLi
attacks since the attack comes as an HTTP request from a legitimate user's 
host. Restricting access would prevent an attacker from accessing the Trend 
Micro Control Manager web interface using stolen credentials from a blocked 
network location.
