MS SQL Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) News – October 2012

Posted October 15, 2012    Jerome Diggs

Eight new audits are being released in our Retina vulnerability scan engine to help close a security vulnerability that can enable an attacker to gain control of a MS SQL Database Server running SQL Reporting Services via Cross-Site Scripting (CVE-2012-2552, MS12-070). These eight new audits have been released with Retina Network Community and the commercial version of Retina Network. Users can include these new checks in a general vulnerability scan, or can create a targeted scan to specifically look for these specific vulnerabilities using the following Retina audits:

1. Audit ID 17269 Microsoft SQL Server Privilege Escalation (2754849) – 2000
2. Audit ID 17270 Microsoft SQL Server Privilege Escalation (2754849) – 2005
3. Audit ID 17271 Microsoft SQL Server Privilege Escalation (2754849) – 2008
4. Audit ID 17272 Microsoft SQL Server Privilege Escalation (2754849) – 2012
5. Audit ID 17281 Microsoft SQL Server Privilege Escalation (2754849) – 2005 x64
6. Audit ID 17282 Microsoft SQL Server Privilege Escalation (2754849) – 2008 x64
7. Audit ID 17283 Microsoft SQL Server Privilege Escalation (2754849) – 2012 x64
8. Audit ID 17284 Microsoft SQL Server Privilege Escalation (2754849) – 2000 x64

If you have concerns of the security posture of your MS SQL environment feel free to download and try out our community version to discover, assess and gain remediation guidance in our simple to use standalone scanner. In addition to standard assessment of patches, insecure configurations and zero-days, the commercial version of Retina Network also provides in-depth credentialed database scanning for Oracle, Microsoft and My SQL to examine permissions and stored procedures for errors or internal mis-configurations.

We should also mention that our new version of the Retina Network Community scanner includes a complete user interface overhaul and allows users to select from a list of built-in profiles to align the product to your specific job function. In this case a “Database Profile” to ensure that you have complete and relevant information to your database world.

Both Retina CS and Retina CS Community allow users to create email alerts based on conditional Smart Rules. In the example below we’ve created a rule looking for the assets that have the vulnerability, CVEID 2012-2552 flagged.
