Category:   Application (Generic)  >   ATutor Vendors:   ATRC
ATutor Input Validation Bugs in 'login.php' and 'search.php' Permit Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1014731
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1014731
CVE Reference:   GENERIC-MAP-NOMATCH   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Aug 18 2005
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information
Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  Exploit Included:  Yes  
Version(s): 1.5.1 and prior versions
Description:   Several input validation vulnerabilities were reported in ATutor. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting 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 ATutor 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.

Some demonstration exploit URLs are provided:

http://[target]/tour/login.php?course="><script>alert('Matrix_Killer r0X');</script>

http://[target]/tour/search.php?search=1&search=1&words="><script>alert('There
is no other place like
127.0.0.1');</script>&include=all&find_in=all&display_as=pages

http://[target]/tour/search.php?search=1&words="><script>alert('Found
By matrix_killer');</script>&include=all&find_in=all&display_as=pages&submit=Search

matrix_killer of h4cky0u Security Forums discovered this vulnerability.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the ATutor 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. The vendor plans to issue a fix in the next release.
Vendor URL:  www.atutor.ca/ (Links to External Site)
Cause:   Input validation error
Underlying OS:   Linux (Any), UNIX (Any), Windows (Any)
