SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1013938
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1013938
CVE Reference:   GENERIC-MAP-NOMATCH   (Links to External Site)
Date:  May 11 2005
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information

Version(s): 1.1; possibly other versions
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in SSServer. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The user-supplied 'search for' field is not properly validated. A remote user can create a specially crafted request 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 SSServer 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.

Secunia disclosed this vulnerability and credited Dr_insane with reporting this vulnerability.

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