WebLogic Portal Input Validation Hole Permits Cross-Site Scripting Attacks and Entitlement Bug Lets Remote Users Access Resources
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1018060
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1018060
CVE Reference:   CVE-2007-2702, CVE-2007-2703   (Links to External Site)
Updated:  May 16 2007
Original Entry Date:  May 15 2007
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  
Version(s): 9.2
Description:   Two vulnerabilities were reported in WebLogic Portal. A remote user can access restricted resources on the target system. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The WebLogic Portal Groupspace application does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input before displaying the input [BEA07-166.00]. A remote authenticated user can create a specially crafted input 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 site running the WebLogic 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 authenticated WebLogic Portal administrator or delegated administrator can corrupt a visitor entitlements role by editing the role description to contain more than 255 characters [BEA07-167.00]. As a result, resources may no longer be protected.

Impact:   A remote user can access protected resources.

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

Solution:   The vendor has issued a fixed version (9.2 Maintenance Pack 1).
