Struts Bugs May Let Remote Users Bypass Validation, Conduct Cross-Site Scripting Attacks, and Deny Service
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1015856
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1015856
CVE Reference:   CVE-2006-1546, CVE-2006-1547, CVE-2006-1548   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Apr 1 2006
Impact:   Denial of service via network, Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): prior to 1.2.9
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Struts. A remote user may be able to cause denial of service conditions. A remote user may be able to conduct cross-site scripting attacks. A remote user may be able to bypass a validation process.

A remote user can submit a request with a specially crafted 'org.apache.struts.taglib.html.Constants.CANCEL' parameter. If the target application does not use the isCancelled() check, the validation process may be bypassed.

When used with BeanUtils 1.7, a remote user can send a multipart/form-data encoded form with a specially crafted parameter name that references the public getMultipartRequestHandler() method to cause denial of service conditions on the target application.

The LookupDispatchAction function does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input before displaying the input. A remote user can cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the Struts 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.

Impact:   A remote user can cause denial of service conditions.

A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the Struts 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.

A remote user can bypass a validation process.

Solution:   The vendor has issued a fixed version (1.2.9), available at:

http://struts.apache.org/

Vendor URL:  struts.apache.org/ (Links to External Site)
Cause:   Access control error, Exception handling error, Input validation error
Underlying OS:  Linux (Any), UNIX (Any), Windows (Any)

Message History:   None.
