Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information
Exploit Included:  Yes  
Version(s): Adventia Chat 3.1, Adventia Chat Server Pro 3.0
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Adventia Chat. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The server permits users to submit HTML code into chat sessions by default. A remote user can submit specially crafted text that, when viewed 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 Adventia Chat 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 March 16, 2005, without response.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the Adventia Chat 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.
