Cisco Security Advisory: Vulnerabilities in Unified Contact Center
Express Administration Pages

Advisory ID: cisco-sa-20090715-uccx

http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/707/cisco-sa-20090715-uccx.shtml 

Revision 1.0

For Public Release 2009 July 15 1600 UTC (GMT)

Summary
======
Cisco Unified Contact Center Express (Cisco Unified CCX) server contains
both a directory traversal vulnerability and a script injection
vulnerability in the administration pages of the Customer Response
Solutions (CRS) and Cisco Unified IP Interactive Voice Response (Cisco
Unified IP IVR) products. Exploitation of these vulnerabilities could
result in a denial of service condition, information disclosure, or a
privilege escalation attack.

Cisco has released free software updates that address these two
vulnerabilities in the latest version of Cisco Unified CCX software.

This advisory is posted at
http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/707/cisco-sa-20090715-uccx.shtml.

Details
======
Cisco Unified Contact Center Express (Cisco Unified CCX) servers may
be affected by both a directory traversal vulnerability and a script
injection vulnerability.

The directory traversal vulnerability may allow authenticated users to
view, modify, or delete any file on the server through the Customer
Response Solutions (CRS) Administration interface. This vulnerability
is documented in Cisco Bug ID CSCsw76644 and has been assigned Common
Vulnerability and Exposures (CVE) ID CVE-2009-2047.

The script injection vulnerability may allow authenticated users to
enter JavaScript into the Cisco Unified CCX database. The stored script
could be executed in the browser of the next authenticated user. This
vulnerability is documented in Cisco Bug ID CSCsw76649 and has been
assigned CVE ID CVE-2009-2048.

Vulnerability Scoring Details
============================
Cisco has provided scores for the vulnerabilities in this advisory based
on the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS). The CVSS scoring in
this Security Advisory is done in accordance with CVSS version 2.0.

CVSS is a standards-based scoring method that conveys vulnerability
severity and helps determine urgency and priority of response.

Cisco has provided a base and temporal score. Customers can then
compute environmental scores to assist in determining the impact of the
vulnerability in individual networks.

Cisco has provided an FAQ to answer additional questions regarding CVSS
at:

http://www.cisco.com/web/about/security/intelligence/cvss-qandas.html 

Cisco has also provided a CVSS calculator to help compute the
environmental impact for individual networks at:

http://intellishield.cisco.com/security/alertmanager/cvss. 

* Incomplete input validation allows modification of OS
files/directories (CSCsw76644)

CVSS Base Score - 9.0
    Access Vector -            Network
    Access Complexity -        Low
    Authentication -           Single

Impact
=====
Successful exploitation of the directory traversal vulnerability may
result in read and write access to files on the underlying operating
system.

Successful exploitation of the script injection vulnerability may result
in the execution of JavaScript of authenticated users and prevent server
pages from displaying properly.

Customers whose Cisco products are provided or maintained through prior
or existing agreements with third-party support organizations, such
as Cisco Partners, authorized resellers, or service providers should
contact that support organization for guidance and assistance with the
appropriate course of action in regards to this advisory.

The effectiveness of any workaround or fix is dependent on specific
customer situations, such as product mix, network topology, traffic
behavior, and organizational mission. Due to the variety of affected
products and releases, customers should consult with their service
provider or support organization to ensure any applied workaround or fix
is the most appropriate for use in the intended network before it is
deployed.

Customers without Service Contracts
