BEA WebLogic Administration Console Input Validation Hole in 'JndiFramesetAction' Permits Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1013817
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1013817
CVE Reference:   CVE-2005-1380   (Links to External Site)
Updated:  May 3 2005
Original Entry Date:  Apr 26 2005
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information
Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  Exploit Included:  Yes  
Version(s): 8.1
Description:   An input validation vulnerability was reported in BEA WebLogic in the administration console. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The 'JndiFramesetAction' function does not properly validate user-supplied input in the 'server' parameter. A remote user can create a specially crafted URL that, when loaded by a target administrator, will cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target administrator's browser. The code will originate from the site running the WebLogic administration console software and will run in the security context of that site. As a result, the code will be able to access the target administrator's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site, access data recently submitted by the target administrator via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target administrator.

A demonstration exploit URL is provided:

http://[target]:8001/console/actions/jndi/JndiFramesetAction?server='<script>alert(document.cookie);</script>mydomain%3AName%3Dmyserver%2CType%3DS

The vendor was notified on April 13, 2004.

Alexander Kornbrust from red-database-security.com reported this vulnerability.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target administrator's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the WebLogic administration console, access data recently submitted by the target administrator via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target administrator.
Solution:   No solution was available at the time of this entry.
Vendor URL:  www.bea.com/ (Links to External Site)
Cause:   Input validation error
Underlying OS:  Linux (Any), UNIX (AIX), UNIX (HP/UX), UNIX (Solaris - SunOS), UNIX (Tru64), Windows (NT), Windows (2000)
