     effectively manages the configuration, health and performance of
     networks, servers and applications through a single, integrated

II. DETAILS
    getJSONEventsInfo contains multiple SQL Injection vulnerabilities due to improperly
    sanitized user provided input. The following URL parameters are injectable: severity,
    state, filter, offset, and count.

    Depending on the type of attack, it may also be accomplished via Cross-Site Request
    Forgery (CSRF).

      /zport/dmd/Events/getJSONEventsInfo?severity=1&state=1&filter=&
      offset=0&count=60 into outfile "/tmp/z"
