Secunia Advisory SA31719

Where:

From remote

Impact:

Cross Site Scripting

Solution Status:

Unpatched

CVE Reference(s):

Description


Some vulnerabilities have been discovered in Open Media Collectors Database (OpenDb), which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting and cross-site request forgery attacks.

1) Input passed to the "user_id" parameter in user_admin.php, to the "title" parameter in listings.php, and to the "redirect_url" in user_profile.php is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a logged in user's browser session in context of an affected site.

2) The application allows users to perform certain actions via HTTP requests without performing any validity checks to verify the request. This can be exploited to e.g. change the password of a target user, who is tricked into visiting a malicious website.

The vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 1.0.6. Other versions may also be affected.


Solution:
Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised. Do not browse untrusted websites while being logged on to the application.
