Updates are available. Description A vulnerability in Cisco Unified MeetingPlace could allow an authenticated, remote attacker to impact the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the affected system by executing arbitrary SQL queries. The vulnerability is due to failure to validate user-supplied input used in SQL queries. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending a crafted SQL statement to an affected system. Successful exploitation could allow the attacker to read, modify, or delete entries in some database tables. Cisco has confirmed the vulnerability and released software updates. Warning Indicators At the time this alert was first published, Cisco Unified MeetingPlace release 8.6(1.2) was vulnerable. Later releases of Cisco Unified MeetingPlace may also be vulnerable. IntelliShield Analysis To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker must authenticate to the targeted system. This access requirement reduces the likelihood of a successful exploit. Cisco indicates through the CVSS score that functional exploit code exists; however, the code is not known to be publicly available. Vendor Announcements Cisco has released bug ID CSCuu54037 for registered users, which contains additional details and an up-to-date list of affected product versions. Impact An authenticated, remote attacker could exploit the vulnerability to read, modify, or delete entries in some database tables on an affected system. A successful exploit could be used to conduct further attacks. Technical Information The vulnerability is due to insufficient validation of user-supplied input used in SQL queries submitted to an affected system. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending crafted SQL statements to a targeted system. An exploit could allow the attacker to read, modify, or delete entries in some database tables on the system, which could be used to conduct further attacks.
