WebWasher Classic HTTP CONNECT Unauthorized Access Weakness

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Searches for the existence of WebWasher Proxy

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

There is a flaw in the remote WebWasher Proxy. The Proxy, when issued
a CONNECT command for 127.0.0.1 (or localhost/loopback), will comply with
the request and initiate a connection to the local machine.

This bypasses any sort of firewalling as well as gives access to local
applications which are only bound to the loopback.

Solution: Upgrade to a version of WebWasher greater than 3.3.
Network Security Threat Level: High
