IBM Lotus Domino Input Validation Flaws Permit Cross-Site Scripting and Cross-Site Request Forgery Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1027418
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1027418
CVE Reference:   CVE-2012-3301, CVE-2012-3302   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Aug 20 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): 8.5, 8.5.1, 8.5.2, 8.5.3
Description:   Two vulnerabilities were reported in IBM Lotus Domino. A remote user can conduct HTTP response splitting attacks. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

Several scripts do 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 running the IBM Lotus Domino 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.

The Help and WebMail components are affected [CVE-2012-3302].

A remote user can submit a specially crafted URL to cause the target server to return a split response [CVE-2012-3301]. A remote user can exploit this to spoof content on the target server, attempt to poison any intermediate web caches, or conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the IBM Lotus Domino 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 create a URL that, when loaded by the target user, will cause arbitrary content to be displayed.

A remote user may be able to poison any intermediate web caches with arbitrary content.

Solution:   The vendor is developing a fix.

A workaround is described in the vendor's advisory.

The vendor's advisory is available at:
