IBM Domino Web Access Input Validation Flaws Permit Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1015610
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1015610
CVE Reference:   GENERIC-MAP-NOMATCH   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Feb 10 2006
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): 7.0.0; prior to 6.5.5
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Domino Web Access. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The client software does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input before displaying the input.

A remote user can send e-mail with a specially crafted subject line that, when viewed by a target user, will cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the Web Access site 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 value is provided:

</TITLE><SCRIPT>alert("Vulnerable!");</SCRIPT>

A remote user can also send e-mail with a specially crafted attachment name that, when viewed by a target user, will cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser.

The software opens attached files (such as '.html' files) in the context of the Web Access site when the target user clicks on the attached file.

A remote user can supply specially crafted values to bypass HTML code filtering and cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. This can be achieved by inserting the '&#13;' entity into javascript URLs.

The vendor was notified on August 22, 2005.
