Land Down Under Input Validation Hole in BBcodes Lets Remote Users Conduct Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1010335
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1010335
CVE Reference:   GENERIC-MAP-NOMATCH   (Links to External Site)
Date:  May 29 2004
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  Exploit Included:  Yes  
Version(s): LDU 700
Description:   An input validation vulnerability was reported in Land Down Under (LDU) in the processing of BBcodes. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

Tim de gier reported that the software does not filter javascript code from user-supplied BBcodes. A remote user can add a specially crafted image tag to a message on the forum so that when the message is viewed by a target user, arbitrary scripting code will be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the LDU software and will run in the security context of that site. As a result, the code will be able to access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.

A demonstration tag is provided:

[img]javascript:alert(document.cookie);[/img]

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the LDU software, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.
Solution:   The vendor has released a fixed version, available at:

http://ldu.neocrome.net/page.php?id=1357

Vendor URL:  ldu.neocrome.net/ (Links to External Site)
Cause:   Input validation error
Underlying OS:   Linux (Any), UNIX (Any), Windows (Any)

Message History:   None.

Subject:  LDU (land down under) xss vulnerability




About Product 
=============

LDU is a php/mysql website engine.

Description
===========

A cross site scripting vulnerability exist in the BBcodes of the LDU forum.

When you add a image to your message on the forum, the script doesn't check if it is javascript. 
I will give the following proof of concept:

[img]javascript:alert(document.cookie);[/img]

With this vuln, you are able to become any user who uses a browser that "supports" xss (like IE), so it is possible to become admin.
Further there also lies a browser independed problem, cause if you post this message:
[img]http://www.thesitewithLDU.com/auth.php?m=logout[/img]

everyone who reads the topic, will logout.

Solution
========

I e-mailed the LDU developers and the bug was fixed the same day i notified them. 

Update to the newest version of LDU 700.
