Microsoft FrontPage Server Extensions Input Validation Holes Permit Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1015896
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1015896
CVE Reference:   CVE-2006-0015   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Apr 11 2006
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  

Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Microsoft FrontPage Server Extensions. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

Several scripts do 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 FrontPage 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 remote user can exploit this to execute arbitrary code and take full control of the target user's system.

Microsoft credits Esteban Martinez Fayo with reporting this vulnerability.

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