raSMP Input Validation Flaw in HTTP User-Agent Field Permits Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1015432
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1015432
CVE Reference:   GENERIC-MAP-NOMATCH   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Jan 4 2006
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of authentication information, Modification of user information
Exploit Included:  Yes  
Version(s): 2.0.0
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in raSMP. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

Several scripts do not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input in the HTTP User-Agent field before displaying the input. A remote user can submit a specially crafted HTTP Request. When the target administrative user views the Site Statistics, arbitrary scripting code will be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the raSMP 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.

The 'common.php', 'common/functions.php', and 'admin/stats.php' scripts are affected.
