Utopia News Pro Input Validation Holes Permit SQL Injection and Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1015016
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1015016
CVE Reference:   CVE-2005-3200, CVE-2005-3201   (Links to External Site)
Updated:  Jun 14 2008
Original Entry Date:  Oct 7 2005
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of system information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information
Exploit Included:  Yes  
Version(s): 1.1.3
Description:   rgod reported a vulnerability in Utopia News Pro. A remote user can inject SQL commands. A remote user can also conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

Several scripts do not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input 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 Utopia News Pro 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]/[path]/header.php?sitetitle=</title><script>alert(document.cookie)</script><!--
http://[target]/[path]/footer.php?version=<script>alert(document.cookie)</script>
http://[target]/[path]/footer.php?query_count=<script>alert(document.cookie)</script>

If magic quotes is not enabled, a remote user can supply a specially crafted 'newsid' parameter value to the 'news.php' script to execute SQL commands on the underlying database.

The original advisory is available at:
