Phorum Input Validation Error in 'search.php' Permits Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1010787
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1010787
CVE Reference:   GENERIC-MAP-NOMATCH   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Jul 27 2004
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information
Exploit Included:  Yes  
Version(s): 5.0.7.beta
Description:   vamp^ reported an input validation vulnerability in the Phorum search engine. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks

It is reported that the 'search.php' script does not properly validate user-supplied input in the 'subject' field. 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 Phorum 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 exploit URL is provided:

http://phorum.org/phorum5/search.php?12,search=vamp,page=1,match_type=ALL,
match_dates=00,match_forum=ALL,body=,author=,subject= [ Evil Code Here ]

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the Phorum 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:   No solution was available at the time of this entry.
Vendor URL:  www.phorum.org/ (Links to External Site)
Cause:   Input validation error
Underlying OS:   Linux (Any), UNIX (Any), Windows (Any)

Message History:   None.
