(Adobe Issues Fix for Dreamweaver) Adobe Flash Content May Permit Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1019225
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1019225
CVE Reference:   CVE-2007-6637   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Jan 16 2008
Impact:   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): 8, CS3
Description:   Adobe Flash content on numerous web sites contain input validation vulnerabilities. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks. [Editor's note: This is not a vulnerability in Flash player.]

Some Adobe Flash content ('.swf' files) may 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 hosting the Adobe Flash content 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.

Pre-generated SWF files distributed with Adobe Dreamweaver CS3 and Adobe Acrobat Connect are affected. Other SWF files may also be affected.

These vulnerabilities were reported in a pending book by Rich Cannings of Google and Himanshu Dwivedi and Zane Lackey of iSEC Partners.

[Editor's note: This is not a vulnerability in Flash Player, per se. Because the issues may numerous web sites, the issue is reported here so that content creators can analyze their code for input validation flaws.]

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site hosting the Adobe Flash content, 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:   Adobe has issued a fix for Dreamweaver, which is affected. Users that have used the "Insert Flash Video" command should regenerate their web site content using the update.
