'web content management' Lets Remote Users Add Administrative Accounts or Conduct Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1014616
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1014616
CVE Reference:   CVE-2005-2488, CVE-2005-2489   (Links to External Site)
Updated:  Jun 8 2008
Original Entry Date:  Aug 3 2005
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information
Exploit Included:  Yes  

Description:   rgod reported a vulnerability in 'web content management'. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks. A remote user can also add administrative accounts.

Several scripts do not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input before displaying the input. A remote user can create a specially crafted URL 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 web content management 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.

Some demonstration exploit URLs are provided:

http://[target]/[path]/Includes/validsession.php?strRootpath=');}//%20--></script><script>alert(document.cookie)</script>
http://[target]/[path]/Admin/News/List.php?strTable=<script>alert(document.cookie)</script><!--

A remote user can access the following URL to add an administrative user account:

http://[target]/[path]/Admin/Users/AddModifyInput.php

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the 'web content management' 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.
Vendor URL:  www.web-content-management.us/content-management-download.php (Links to External Site)
Cause:   Input validation error
Underlying OS:  Linux (Any), UNIX (Any), Windows (Any)

Message History:   None.
