Exploit Included: Yes |
A vulnerability was reported in SCT Campus Pipeline. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks to cause a target user to execute arbitrary application commands.|
Spiffomatic64 reported that the e-mail interface does not filter certain scripting handles such as onload(), onmouseover(), and onclick(). A remote user can send a specially crafted e-mail that, when viewed 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 SCT Campus Pipeline 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 content is provided in the Source Message.

institutions. It improves efficiency, builds community, and provides freedom
of choice by integrating disparate systems and applications into a unified
to information, services, and communities.
certain attachments such as; html, bmp. Jpg, gif, etc, in the body of the
email. It does a noble job of filtering scripting in html files but certain
on event handles remain untouched such as: onload(), onmouseover(),
onclick(), etc. This is a huge issue seeing as the html page is logged in
with the same permissions as the user who views it. The software also uses
execute any command such as deletemessage() from <body
that html attached to it. When linked to another page with <body
other scripting method as you would like. This hole leads to an attached
html having full control over the victims email account just by the victim
viewing the email. Because the attacker would have the users session still
set, he could potentially execute any command this software uses, such as
Solution: The easiest way would be to just disallow previewing of
attachments. No other web email service allows this, and for good reason.
Another solution would be to filter all onevent handles such as onload(),
onmouseover(), onclick(), etc.
Credits: Credits goto http://hackthissite.org. It provided a nice, open,
legal environment for me to try new things and learn from those who know. A
place where you are not reprimanded even if u deface a page or two. A place
where I started with no knowledge and in less than a year found new
vulnerabilities of my own. Thank you http://hackthissite.org. Lab rats:
Ashley, Amy, Nick, Shrinidhi, Charbel and most importantly to Halley, you
give me the strength and courage to do all that I do, without you I am
nothing. Thank you sweetheart.
Exploit: This exemplifies three different onevent handles used:
