TYPO3 Bugs Permit Cross-Site Scripting, SQL Injection, and Information Disclosure Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1027745
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1027745
CVE Reference:   GENERIC-MAP-NOMATCH   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Nov 9 2012
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of system information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): prior to versions 4.5.21, 4.6.14, 4.7.6
Description:   Several vulnerabilities were reported in TYPO3. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks. A remote authenticated user can inject SQL commands. A remote authenticated user can obtain potentially sensitive information.

Several scripts do not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input 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 site running the TYPO3 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 TYPO3 Backend History Module is affected. The tree render API (TCA-Tree) is affected. The function menu API is affected.

The software does not properly validate user-supplied input. A remote authenticated user can supply a specially crafted parameter value to execute SQL commands on the underlying database. The TYPO3 Backend History Module is affected.

The TYPO3 Backend History Module does not properly validate user access. A remote authenticated user with Editor privileges can submit a specially crafted URL to access the history view of arbitrary records.

Thomas Worm, Johannes Feustel, Richard Brain, and Core Team Member Oliver Hader reported these vulnerabilities.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the TYPO3 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 authenticated user can execute SQL commands on the underlying database.

A remote authenticated user can obtain potentially sensitive information.

Solution:   The vendor has issued a fix (4.5.21, 4.6.14, 4.7.6).

The vendor's advisory is available at:
