OpenCms Input Validation Hole in Xml Content Demo Search Query Permits Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1016158
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1016158
CVE Reference:   CVE-2006-2571   (Links to External Site)
Updated:  Jun 13 2006
Original Entry Date:  May 25 2006
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information
Exploit Included:  Yes  
Version(s): Tested on 6.0.0, 6.0.2, 6.0.3
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in OpenCms. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The Xml Content Demo does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input in the search query 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 OpenCms 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 demonstration exploit URL is provided:
