Red Hat Enterprise MRG Grid Input Validation Flaw in Cumin Management Console Permits Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1026921
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1026921
CVE Reference:   CVE-2012-1575   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Apr 12 2012
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  
Version(s): 2
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Red Hat Enterprise MRG Grid. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The MRG Management Console (Cumin) does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input before displaying the input. A remote user can cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the MRG Management Console 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.

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