Updated:  Mar 13 2008
Original Entry Date:  Feb 15 2008

Description:   Several vulnerabilities were reported in Dokeos. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks. A remote user can inject SQL commands.

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 Dokeos 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.

The 'username' parameter in 'main/auth/inscription.php' is affected.

The 'courseCode' parameter in 'main/calendar/myagenda.php' is affected.

The 'category' parameter in 'main/admin/course_category.php' is affected.

The 'cmessage' parameter in 'main/admin/session_list.php' is affected.

Uploaded images in 'main/auth/profile.php' are affected.

A remote user can supply a specially crafted parameter value to execute SQL commands on the underlying database.

The 'id' parameter in '/whoisonline.php' is affected.

The 'tracking_list_coaches_column' parameter in 'main/mySpace/index.php' is affected.

The 'tutor_name' parameter in 'main/create_course/add_course.php' is affected.

The 'Referer' parameter in 'index.php' is affected.

The 'X-Fowarded-For' parameter in 'main/admin/class_list.php' is affected.

Alexandr Polyakov and Stas Svistunovich of Digital Security Research Group reported these vulnerabilities.

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

A remote user can execute SQL commands on the underlying database.
