Novell eDirectory Input Validation Hole in iMonitor Error Messages Permits Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1020321
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1020321
CVE Reference:   CVE-2008-0925   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Jun 18 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): 8.8.2 and prior version
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Novell eDirectory. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The iMonitor interface does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input before displaying the input. A remote user can cause iMonitor HTTP stack errors that, when displayed on the target user's iMonitor interface, will cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the Novell eDirectory iMonitor 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.

Nicholas Gregorie reported this vulnerability.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the Novell eDirectory iMonitor 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.
