SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1014883

CVE Reference:   GENERIC-MAP-NOMATCH   (Links to External Site)
Updated:  Sep 16 2005
Original Entry Date:  Sep 12 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  Exploit Included:  Yes  
Version(s): 4.0
Description:   Lostmon reported a vulnerability was in Spymac Web OS. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The 'index.php' script does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input in the 'category' parameter 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 vulnerable 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 URL is provided:

http://[target]/index.php?category=1%22%3E%3Cbody%3E%3Ch1%3ESe%20busca%20H4x0r%3C/h1%3E%3Cp%3E%20es%20peligroso%20y%20va%20armado%3Cbr%3E%20Lleva%20un%20portatil%20y%20un%20palm%20en%20las%20manos%3Cbr%3E%20si%20le%20ven%20;%20no%20le%20proporcionen%20conexion%20a%20internet.%3C/p%3E%3Cp%3E%3C/p%3E3Cimg20src=http://www.ttvn.com.vn/Uploaded/administrator/

The vendor was notified on September 10, 2005.

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

leading to a loss of integrity.
