Description


Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Collabtive, which can be exploited by malicious users to conduct script insertion and SQL injection attacks and by malicious people to disclose sensitive information, conduct cross-site scripting attacks, and cross-site request forgery attacks.

1) Input passed via the "User" field when editing a user profile to manageuser.php is not properly sanitised before being used and returned to the user. This can be exploited to insert arbitrary HTML and script code, which will get executed in a user's browser session in context of an affected site when the malicious data is being viewed.

2) Input passed via the "y" parameter to manageajax.php (when "action" is set to "newcal") and via the "pic" parameter to thumb.php is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.

3) The application allows users to perform certain actions via HTTP requests without making validity checks to verify the requests. This can be exploited to e.g. add an administrative user by tricking an administrator into visiting a malicious web site while being logged-in to the application.

4) Input passed via e.g. the "chatstart0" cookie to managechat.php (when "action" is set to "pull") is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.

5) Input passed via the "pic" parameter to thumb.php is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's bowser session in the context of an affected site, if the browser (e.g. Internet Explorer 6) interprets malicious code in the content of the returned "image/jpeg" MIME type as "text/html" MIME type.

6) Input passed via the "pic" parameter to thumb.php is not properly verified before being used to display images. This can be exploited to view arbitrary images from local resources via directory traversal sequences.

NOTE: This can further be exploited to enumerate arbitrary files on the local system.

7) Input passed via the "id" parameter to managetimetracker.php (when "action" is set to "editform" and "tid" is set) and manageuser.php (when "action" is set to "profile") is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.

8) Input passed via the "name" and "desc" parameters to manageproject.php (when "action" is set to "edit") is not properly sanitised before being displayed to the user. This can be exploited to inject arbitrary HTML and script code, which will be executed in a user's browser session in context of an affected site when the malicious data is viewed.

The vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 0.6.5. Other versions may also be affected.


Solution:
Update to version 0.7, which fixes vulnerabilities #1, #2, #4, #5, #7, and #8. Edit the source code to ensure that the input is properly verified. Do not browse untrusted web sites or follow untrusted links while being logged in to the application.
