SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1026773
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1026773
CVE Reference:   GENERIC-MAP-NOMATCH   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Mar 8 2012
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): 7.6.0.028
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Barracuda Web Application Firewall. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The 'sessions_by_user' function does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input in the 'filter' parameter 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 Barracuda Web Application Firewall interface 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.

The vendor was notified on February 2012.
