TinyPHPForum Bugs Let Remote Users Obtain Information and Conduct Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1015436
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1015436
CVE Reference:   GENERIC-MAP-NOMATCH   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Jan 5 2006
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of system information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information
Exploit Included:  Yes  
Version(s): 3.6 and prior versions
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in TinyPHPForum. A remote user can view information on the target system. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The software does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input before displaying the input. When posting a link, a remote user can create a specially crafted link 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 TinyPHPForum 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.

The software does not properly protect access to user information. A remote user can supply the following type of URLs to obtain user information:

http://[target]/tpf/users/anyuser.hash
http://[target]/tpf/users/anyuser.email

When creating a new user, creating a new topic, or viewing a user's profile, a remote user can supply a specially crafted URL to view information on the target system.

A demonstration exploit URL is provided:

http://[target]/tpf/profile.php? action=view&uname=../../username
