Siteman Input Validation Holes in 'news.php' and 'forum.php' Permit Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1012905
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1012905
CVE Reference:   GENERIC-MAP-NOMATCH   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Jan 14 2005
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information
Exploit Included:  Yes  
Version(s): 1.1.9
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Siteman. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

Pi3cH of PersianHacker.NET Security Team reported that the 'news.php' and 'forums.php' scripts do not properly validate user-supplied input to filter HTML code 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 Siteman 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]/forum.php?do=viewtopic&cat=1&topic=1&page=1?"><script>alert(document.cookie)</script>

http://[target]/news.php?do=showone&id=1&page=1?"><script>alert(document.cookie)</script>

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the Siteman 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:  sitem.sourceforge.net/ (Links to External Site)
