Multiple Adobe Products
XML External Entity And XML Injection Vulnerabilities

CVE: CVE-2009-3960
Adobe PSIRT: APSB10-05 - http://www.adobe.com/support/security/bulletins/apsb10-05.html 
Link: http://www.security-assessment.com/files/advisories/2010-02-22_Multiple_Adobe_Products-XML_External_Entity_and_XML_Injection.pdf 

+-----------+
|Description|
+-----------+

Security-Assessment.com discovered that multiple Adobe 
products with different Data Services versions are 
vulnerable to XML External Entity (XXE) and XML 
injection attacks. 
XML external Entities injection allows a wide range of
XML based attacks, including local file disclosure, 
TCP scans and Denial of Service condition, which can 
be achieved by recursive entity injection, attribute 
blow up and other types of injection. 
For more information about the implications associated
to this vulnerability, refer to the RFC2518 (17.7 
Implications of XML External Entities): 
http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2518.txt 

+--------------+
|Product Review|
+--------------+

Adobe Data Services components provide Flex/RIA 
applications with data messaging, remoting and 
management capabilities.

The discovered vulnerabilities affect the HTTPChannel
 servlet classes which are respectively 
=E2=80=9Cmx.messaging.channels.HTTPChannel=E2=80=9D and 
=E2=80=9Cmx.messaging.channels.SecureHTTPChannel=E2=80=9D. These 
classes are part of the Data Services Messaging 
classes and can be found in the 
flex-messaging-common.jar Java archive.

The HTTPChannel transports data in the AMFX format, 
which is the text-based XML representation of AMF. 
The HTTPChannel endpoints are defined in the 
services-config.xml file, located within the 
Flex/WEB-INF folder of the application. 
By default, the HTTPChannel classes are mapped to 
the following endpoints:

1. http://{server.name}:{server.port}/{context.root}/messagebroker/http 
2. https://{server.name}:{server.port}/{context.root}/messagebroker/httpsecure

Note that the HTTPChannel may be mapped to different 
endpoints. 
This depends on the deployed application and the 
framework in use (e.g. BlazeDS, Adobe LiveCycle 
Data Services, etc.).

+--------------------------------------------+
|Exploitation - XML External Entity Injection|
+--------------------------------------------+

XML entities can be declared and included within AMFX
requests passed to the HTTPChannel. The XML parser 
parses the payload and successfully processes 
injected entities.

The following table shows an example of XML external
entity injection which leads to local file disclosure.
The AMFX request is sent via the HTTPChannel endpoint
in BlazeDS.

Security-Assessment.com managed to inject arbitrary XML content which was returned in the XML response. The following table shows an XML injection in the BlazeDS HTTPChannel. The injected payload becomes part of the response. In this case, injection is possible via the =E2=80=9CresponseURI=E2=80=9D attribute.
