Fusion News Input Validation Flaw in 'fullnews.php' Lets Remote Users Conduct Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1009920
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1009920
CVE Reference:   GENERIC-MAP-NOMATCH   (Links to External Site)
Updated:  Apr 27 2004
Original Entry Date:  Apr 23 2004
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information
Exploit Included:  Yes  
Version(s): 3.6.1
Description:   DarkBicho reported an input validation vulnerability in Fusion News. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

It is reported that 'fullnews.php' does not filter HTML code from user-supplied input in the 'id' variable. 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 Fusion News 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.

A demonstration exploit URL is provided:

http://site vulnerable/fullnews.php?id=<script>alert(document.cookie);</script>

The vendor has reportedly been notified.

The original advisory is available at:

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the Fusion News 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.fusionphp.net/index.php?cat=fnews&page=downloads (Links to External Site)
