Apache mod_imap Input Validation Flaw in Referer Field Lets Remote Users Conduct Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1015344
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1015344
CVE Reference:   CVE-2005-3352   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Dec 13 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): prior to 1.3.35-dev, 2.0.56-dev
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Apache in mod_imap. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The mod_imap module does not properly validate user-supplied input when using the Referer directive with image maps. In certain configurations, 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 Apache 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.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the affected Apache 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 fixed development versions (1.3.35-dev, 2.0.56-dev).
Vendor URL:  httpd.apache.org/ (Links to External Site)
Cause:   Input validation error
Underlying OS:  Linux (Any), UNIX (Any), Windows (Any)
