Improper Control of Generation of Code ('Code Injection')
A vulnerability in the administrative web interface of Cisco Prime Infrastructure could allow an authenticated, remote attacker to modify a page in the web interface of the affected application. The vulnerability is due to improper sanitization of parameter values by the affected application. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by injecting malicious code into an affected parameter and persuading a user to access a web page that triggers the rendering of the injected code. Cisco Bug IDs: CSCve47074. Known Affected Releases: 3.2(0.0).
CWE-94 - Code Injection
Code injection is a type of vulnerability that allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code. This vulnerability fully compromises the machine and can cause a wide variety of security issues, such as unauthorized access to sensitive information, manipulation of data, denial of service attacks etc. Code injection is different from command injection in the fact that it is limited by the functionality of the injected language (e.g. PHP), as opposed to command injection, which leverages existing code to execute commands, usually within the context of a shell.
