Description:   A vulnerability has been reported in the 'x-stat' web server log file analysis tool. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks against x-stat administrators and can also obtain information about the server.

It is reported that the vulnerabilities reside in x_stat_admin.php.

A remote user can request a non-existent function with the following type of URL to cause the server to return the full installation path of the script:

x_stat_admin.php?action=[non-existent function]

A remote user can use the following type of URL to execute the phpinfo() function to cause the server to return various information, including the hostname, the operating system, the server type, and other potentially sensitive information.


A remote user can create HTML containing a URL with malicious scripting that, when viewed by a target (victim) administrator will cause arbitrary code to be executed on the victim's browser:


This script will run in the context of the x-stat server and will be able to access the target user's cookies associated with that server (if there are any cookies).

Impact:   A remote user can obtain potentially sensitive information about the x-stat server. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks against x-stat administrators to steal the administrator's cookies associated with the x-stat server.
Solution:   No solution was available at the time of this entry.
