CWE-352: Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF)


Sierra Wireless is a wireless communications equipement designer and manufacturer. They provide both embedded solutions as well as wireless hardware solutions, including both the ES450 and GX450 devices. The AirLink ES450 is a LTE gateway designed for distributed enterprise. The ES450 is typically seen connecting Point-of-sale devices, remote SCADA equipment, or other business critical equipment. The AirLink ES450 also provides a terminal server for remote out-of-band administration.

ACEManager is the web server included with the AirLink ES450. This web server is responsible for the majority of interactions in the device. Some specific capabilities of the web server are routing, device reconfiguration, user authentication and certificate management. The vendor has stated that the ACEManager web application is not accessible by default from the Cellular WAN.

The webserver ACEManager is lacking the presence of a cross-site request forgery prevent header. As seen in the request below, there are no headers provided to check for cross-site request forgery. These headers would provide the server the ability to check that requests are coming from a similar session in a coherent manner, instead of coming from a link of an unrelated browser that is capitalizing on a pre-authenticated session.
