Cross Site Scripting

Solution Status:

Unpatched

Software:

CVE Reference(s):

Description


Some vulnerabilities have been discovered in XAMPP, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting and cross-site request forgery attacks.

1) Input passed to the "dbserver", "host", "user", "password", "database", and "table" parameters in xmapp/adodb.php is not properly sanitised before being returned to a user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.

2) The xampp/security/xamppsecurity.php script allows administrators to perform certain actions via HTTP requests without performing proper validity checks to verify the request. This can be exploited to e.g. change the login credentials when a logged-in administrator visits a malicious web site.

The vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 1.6.8 (Windows Installer). Other versions may also be affected.


Solution:
Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised and requests are probably verified.
