NETGEAR ProSafe SSL VPN Concentrator Input Validation Hole Permits Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1018817
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1018817
CVE Reference:   CVE-2007-5562   (Links to External Site)
Updated:  Mar 19 2008
Original Entry Date:  Oct 15 2007
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information
Exploit Included:  Yes  
Version(s): SSL312
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in the NETGEAR ProSafe SSL VPN Concentrator 25. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The web interface does 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 NETGEAR Router 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 vendor was notified on October 9, 2007.

A demonstration exploit request is provided:

/cgi-bin/welcome/XYZ?err=<script>alert('XSS');</script>"

SkyOut reported this vulnerability.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the NETGEAR Router 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.netgear.com/ (Links to External Site)
Cause:   Input validation error
Underlying OS:  

Message History:   None.

____________________
|| 0x02: INFORMATION

In the product "Netgear SSL312 PROSAFE SSL VPN-Concentrator 25",
which is a VPN router for smaller to medium business companies and
priced about 400 Euro, a bug occurs in the login page due to the
fact of an unfiltered variable. It is possible to execute JavaScript
code on the webinterface. It may be possible, that other products
of this series are vulnerable to this bug, too (not tested!).

_____________________
|| 0x03: EXPLOITATION

To exploit this bug no exploit is needed, all can be done trough
the webinterface of the router in five simple steps:

STEP 1:
Go to the webinterface of the router, located at "/cgi-bin/welcome"
by default.

STEP 2:
Wihout giving any further parameters click LOGIN.

STEP 3:
An error page will occurr with a variable (default is "err") in the
URL. Example: "/cgi-bin/welcome/XYZ?err="

STEP 4:
Manipulate the URL and put your script code into the variable.
Demo: "/cgi-bin/welcome/XYZ?err=<script>alert('XSS');</script>"

STEP 5:
Click ENTER and the demo popup will show up. The script code has been
successfully executed.

I would consider this a smaller bug, that can only be used in very
specific situations. A successfull exploitation of this bug could
lead to Session Hijacking.

<!> Happy Hacking <!>
