Technical Details & Description:
A persistent input validation web vulnerability has been discovered in the cobi tools v1.0.8 apple ios mobile
The vulnerability allows an attacker to inject own malicious script codes persistent on the application-side to

The persistent web vulnerability is located in the `devicename` parameter of the `eventlog email` module. Attackers are
to inject malicious script code as `devicename` to provoke an execution within the `email body message` context. The
point is the devicename in the idevice settings. The execution point of the bug occurs in the message body of the
eventlog email.
The content of the eventlog that generates the email is not parsed at all.

The security risk of the web vulnerability is estimated as medium with a cvss (common vulnerability scoring system)
count of 3.5.
Exploitation of the web vulnerability requires a low privilege ios device account with restricted access and low user
Successful exploitation of the vulnerability results in persistent phishing mails, session hijacking, persistent
external redirect
to malicious sources and application-side manipulation of affected or connected module context.

Vulnerable Module(s)
[+] EventLog

Vulnerable Input(s):
[+] name

Vulnerable Parameter(s)
[+] devicename

Affected Module(s)
[+] Mail Message Body (Email)

Proof of Concept (PoC):
The persistent validation vulnerability can be exploited by attackers with low privilege iOS device user account and
without user interaction.
For security demonstration or to reproduce the vulnerability follow the provided information and steps below to

Manual steps to reproduce the vulnerability ...
1. Install the application to your idevice (iphone or ipad)
2. Start the mobile application
3. Open the idevice ios settigs
4. Change the devicename to a maliciousc script code test payload
5. Save the entry and open the installed application again
6. Move to the eventlog and click on top the email button
7. The email opens and the execute takes place in the message body context
8. Successful reproduce of the vulnerability!

Solution - Fix & Patch:
The solution is to parse the devicename of the ios device within the email message body context. Disallow the usage of
special chars for devicenames in the app to prevent local exploitation.

Security Risk:
The security risk of the persistent input validation vulnerability in the cobi tools application is estimated as
medium. (CVSS 3.5)
