Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Microsoft Content Management Server. A remote user can execute arbitrary code on the target system. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

A remote user can send a specially crafted HTTP GET request to trigger a memory corruption error and execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2007-0938]. The code will run with the privileges of the target service.

Several scripts do not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input in an HTML redirection query before displaying the input [CVE-2007-0939]. A remote user can create a specially crafted query 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 Microsoft Content Management Server 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.

Microsoft credits Martyn Tovey of Netcraft with reporting the cross-site scripting and spoofing vulnerability (CVE-2007-0939).

Impact:   A remote user can execute arbitrary code on the target system.

A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the Microsoft Content Management Server 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.
