When authenticated as an administrator user inside VMWare Workspace One Access, it is possible to send HTTP requests to arbitrary URLs and read the full HTTP response for these requests. When the HTTP requests are being made, an authentication header (Authorization) is sent, which includes an admin-level JWT.
Due to the lack of a slash character, it is possible for an attacker to make HTTP requests to arbitrary origins and read the full response. Furthermore, an authorization header gets leaked and hence it is possible for an attacker to weaponize this vulnerability to steal the authorization header of an admin upon viewing an image or making a single click.
identity-manager-20.01.0.0-15509389_OVF10.ova - 20.01
Admin token disclosure affects 20.01, but not later versions.
Later versions are still vulnerable to the SSRF vulnerability.
Workspace ONE Access, (formerly VMware Identity Manager), provides multi-factor authentication, conditional access and single sign-on to SaaS, web and native mobile apps.
