Vigil@nce: Solaris, denial of service of SunMC

September 2008 by Vigil@nce


A remote attacker can progressively create a denial of service on Sun Management Center.

Gravity: 2/4

Consequences: denial of service of service

Provenance: intranet client

Means of attack: 1 attack

Ability of attacker: technician (2/4)

Confidence: confirmed by the editor (5/5)

Diffusion of the vulnerable configuration: high (3/3)

Creation date: 16/09/2008

Identifier: VIGILANCE-VUL-8112


- Sun Solaris [confidential versions]
- Sun Trusted Solaris [confidential versions]


The Sun Management Center product proposes a web site where administrators authenticate.

The PRM (Performance Reporting Manager) module can be enabled on SunMC.

When a web user wishes to authenticate and enters an empty username and password, a memory area is not freed.

An attacker can therefore progressively use system resources, in order to create a denial of service.
