SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1016027

CVE Reference:   CVE-2006-2243, CVE-2006-2244   (Links to External Site)
Updated:  Dec 18 2009
Original Entry Date:  May 4 2006

Exploit Included:  Yes  

Description:   Kw3rLn reported a vulnerability in Web4Future News Portal. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks. A remote user can inject SQL commands.

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 Web4Future News Portal 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]/comentarii.php?ID=[XSS]
http://[target]/view.php?ID=[XSS]

A remote user can also supply a specially crafted parameter value to execute SQL commands on the underlying database.

Some demonstration exploit URLs are provided:

http://[target]/comentarii.php?ID=[SQL]
http://[target]/view.php?ID=[SQL]

The vendor was notified without response.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the Web4Future News Portal 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.

A remote user can execute SQL commands on the underlying database.

Solution:   No solution was available at the time of this entry.
