Linksys Video Camera Input Validation Hole Permits Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1010489
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1010489
CVE Reference:   GENERIC-MAP-NOMATCH   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Jun 14 2004
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information
Exploit Included:  Yes  
Version(s): 2.10
Description:   An input validation vulnerability was reported in the Linksys Video Camera. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

Tyler Guenter (scriptX) reported that the 'main.cgi' script does not properly validate user-supplied 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 Linksys 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.

A demonstration exploit URL is provided:

http://[target]/main.cgi?next_file=poop<script>alert('scriptX :P');</script>

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the Linksys web camera 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:   No solution was available at the time of this entry.
