SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1014969
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1014969
CVE Reference:   CVE-2005-3085   (Links to External Site)
Updated:  Jun 15 2008
Original Entry Date:  Sep 24 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): 2.17
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Riverdark RSS Syndicator for IPB. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The 'rss.php' script does 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 vulnerable script 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]/[board]/rss.php?forum=<script>alert(document.cookie);</script>

http://[target]/[board]/rss.php?topic=<script>alert(document.cookie);</script>

X1NG (x1ngBox at gmail.com) reported this vulnerability.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the vulnerable script, 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.riverdark.net/ (Links to External Site)
