Ansel Input Validation Hole in 'image' Parameter Lets Remote Users Inject SQL Commands and Conduct Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1012434
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1012434
CVE Reference:   GENERIC-MAP-NOMATCH   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Dec 6 2004
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of system information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): 2.1; possibly other versions
Description:   Some input validation vulnerabilities were reported in Ansel. A remote user can inject SQL commands and conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

Secunia Research reported that the user-supplied 'image' parameter is not properly validated. A remote user can supply a specially crafted value to execute SQL commands on the underlying database.

It is also reported that the user-supplied album name field is not properly validated. A remote user can submit a specially crafted value. Then, when a target user views the album, arbitrary scripting code will be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the Ansel 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 was notified on November 17, 2004.

Impact:   A remote user can execute SQL commands on the underlying database.

A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the Ansel 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 released a fixed version (2.2), available at:

ftp://heron.sdsc.edu/pub/ansel-2.2.tar.gz

Vendor URL:  freshmeat.net/projects/ansel/ (Links to External Site)
Cause:   Input validation error
Underlying OS:  Linux (Any), UNIX (Any)
