Microsoft SharePoint Input Validation Hole Permits Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1018789
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1018789
CVE Reference:   CVE-2007-2581   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Oct 9 2007
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  

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

The software does 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 Microsoft SharePoint 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:

http://[target]/sharepoint/default.aspx/%22);}if(true){alert(%22qwertytis

Solarius reported this vulnerability.


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