SocketMail Input Validation Hole in 'lost_id' Parameter Permits Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1018855
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1018855
CVE Reference:   CVE-2007-5649   (Links to External Site)
Updated:  Nov 6 2007
Original Entry Date:  Oct 24 2007
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information
Exploit Included:  Yes  
Version(s): 2.2.1 and prior versions
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in SocketMail. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The 'lostpwd.php' script does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input in the 'lost_id' parameter 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 SocketMail 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://[target]/[PATH]/lostpwd.php?lost_id=[XSS]
