IBM Lotus iNotes Input Validation Flaws Permit Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1028363
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1028363
CVE Reference:   CVE-2012-5943, CVE-2013-0525   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Mar 27 2013
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 iNotes. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The software does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input before displaying the input. A remote user cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the IBM Lotus iNotes 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 vendor has assigned SPR# JDOE8ZZS9 [CVE-2012-5943] and SPR# DKEN8PDNTX [CVE-2013-0525] to these vulnerabilities.

Thomas Skora 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 IBM Lotus Notes 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.
Solution:   The vendor has issued a fix (9.0).

The vendor plans to include the fix in future 8.5.x Fix Packs.

The vendor's advisory is available at:
