SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1014515
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1014515
CVE Reference:   CVE-2005-2276   (Links to External Site)
Updated:  Jun 15 2008
Original Entry Date:  Jul 19 2005
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): 6.5
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Novell GroupWise Webaccess. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

In certain situations, a remote user can send a specially crafted e-mail 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 Webaccess 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 is provided:

The vendor was notified on June 14, 2005.

Novell credits Francisco Amato of Infobyte Security Research with discovering this vulnerability.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the Webaccess 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 issued a fix (any build of GroupWise 6.5 webaccess dated after July 11, 2005).

The fix will be included in GroupWise 6.5 SP5.
