APC Network Management Card Devices Input Validation Flaws Permit Cross-Site Scripting and Cross-Site Request Forgery Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1023388
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1023388
CVE Reference:   CVE-2009-1797, CVE-2009-1798   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Dec 24 2009
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): devices with Network Management Cards (NMCs) are affected.
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in APC Network Management Card based devices. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting and cross-site request forgery attacks.

Several scripts do not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input before displaying the input. A remote user can create a specially crafted URL that, when loaded by a target user, will cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the APC Devices 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.
