E-Data Missing Input Validation Lets Remote Users Conduct Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1013589
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1013589
CVE Reference:   CVE-2005-0924   (Links to External Site)
Updated:  Jul 7 2008
Original Entry Date:  Mar 29 2005
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information
Exploit Included:  Yes  
Version(s): 2.0
Description:   An input validation vulnerability was reported in E-Data. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The "add to database" function does not properly validate several user-supplied fields to remove HTML code. A remote user can submit specially crafted inputs. Then, when a target user views the directory entry, arbitrary scripting code will be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the E-Data 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.

Donnie Werner from exploitlabs discovered this vulnerability.

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