CWE CWE-79
CAPEC
  • Cross Site Scripting through Log Files
    An attacker may leverage a system weakness where logs are susceptible to log injection to insert scripts into the system's logs. If these logs are later viewed by an administrator through a thin administrative interface and the log data is not properly HTML encoded before being written to the page, the attackers' scripts stored in the log will be executed in the administrative interface with potentially serious consequences. This attack pattern is really a combination of two other attack patterns: log injection and stored cross site scripting.
  • Embedding Scripts in Non-Script Elements
    This attack is a form of Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) where malicious scripts are embedded in elements that are not expected to host scripts such as image tags (<img>), comments in XML documents (< !-CDATA->), etc. These tags may not be subject to the same input validation, output validation, and other content filtering and checking routines, so this can create an opportunity for an attacker to tunnel through the application's elements and launch a XSS attack through other elements. As with all remote attacks, it is important to differentiate the ability to launch an attack (such as probing an internal network for unpatched servers) and the ability of the remote attacker to collect and interpret the output of said attack.
  • Embedding Scripts within Scripts
    An attack of this type exploits a programs' vulnerabilities that are brought on by allowing remote hosts to execute scripts. The attacker leverages this capability to execute scripts to execute his/her own script by embedding it within other scripts that the target software is likely to execute. The attacker must have the ability to inject script into script that is likely to be executed. If this is done, then the attacker can potentially launch a variety of probes and attacks against the web server's local environment, in many cases the so-called DMZ, back end resources the web server can communicate with, and other hosts. With the proliferation of intermediaries, such as Web App Firewalls, network devices, and even printers having JVMs and Web servers, there are many locales where an attacker can inject malicious scripts. Since this attack pattern defines scripts within scripts, there are likely privileges to execute said attack on the host. Of course, these attacks are not solely limited to the server side, client side scripts like Ajax and client side JavaScript can contain malicious scripts as well. In general all that is required is for there to be sufficient privileges to execute a script, but not protected against writing.
  • Cross-Site Scripting in Error Pages
    An attacker distributes a link (or possibly some other query structure) with a request to a third party web server that is malformed and also contains a block of exploit code in order to have the exploit become live code in the resulting error page. When the third party web server receives the crafted request and notes the error it then creates an error message that echoes the malformed message, including the exploit. Doing this converts the exploit portion of the message into to valid language elements that are executed by the viewing browser. When a victim executes the query provided by the attacker the infected error message error message is returned including the exploit code which then runs in the victim's browser. XSS can result in execution of code as well as data leakage (e.g. session cookies can be sent to the attacker). This type of attack is especially dangerous since the exploit appears to come from the third party web server, who the victim may trust and hence be more vulnerable to deception.
  • Cross-Site Scripting Using Alternate Syntax
    The attacker uses alternate forms of keywords or commands that result in the same action as the primary form but which may not be caught by filters. For example, many keywords are processed in a case insensitive manner. If the site's web filtering algorithm does not convert all tags into a consistent case before the comparison with forbidden keywords it is possible to bypass filters (e.g., incomplete black lists) by using an alternate case structure. For example, the "script" tag using the alternate forms of "Script" or "ScRiPt" may bypass filters where "script" is the only form tested. Other variants using different syntax representations are also possible as well as using pollution meta-characters or entities that are eventually ignored by the rendering engine. The attack can result in the execution of otherwise prohibited functionality.
  • Cross-Site Scripting Using MIME Type Mismatch
    An attacker creates a file with scripting content but where the specified MIME type of the file is such that scripting is not expected. Some browsers will detect that the specified MIME type of the file does not match the actual type of the content and will automatically switch to using an interpreter for the real content type. If the browser does not invoke script filters before doing this, the attackers' script may run on the target unsanitized. For example, the MIME type text/plain may be used where the actual content is text/javascript or text/html. Since text does not contain scripting instructions, the stated MIME type would indicate that filtering is unnecessary. However, if the target application subsequently determines the file's real type and invokes the appropriate interpreter, scripted content could be invoked. In another example, img tags in HTML content could reference a renderable type file instead of an expected image file. The file extension and MIME type can describe an image file, but the file content can be text/javascript or text/html resulting in script execution. If the browser assumes all references in img tags are images, and therefore do not need to be filtered for scripts, this would bypass content filters. In a cross-site scripting attack, the attacker tricks the victim into accessing a URL that uploads a script file with an incorrectly specified MIME type. If the victim's browser switches to the appropriate interpreter without filtering, the attack will execute as a standard XSS attack, possibly revealing the victim's cookies or executing arbitrary script in their browser.
  • Cross-Site Scripting in Attributes
    The attacker inserts commands to perform cross-site scripting (XSS) actions in HTML attributes. Many filters do not adequately sanitize attributes against the presence of potentially dangerous commands even if they adequately sanitize tags. For example, dangerous expressions could be inserted into a style attribute in an anchor tag, resulting in the execution of malicious code when the resulting page is rendered. If a victim is tricked into viewing the rendered page the attack proceeds like a normal XSS attack, possibly resulting in the loss of sensitive cookies or other malicious activities.
  • Cross-Site Scripting via Encoded URI Schemes
    An attack of this type exploits the ability of most browsers to interpret "data", "javascript" or other URI schemes as client-side executable content placeholders. This attack consists of passing a malicious URI in an anchor tag HREF attribute or any other similar attributes in other HTML tags. Such malicious URI contains, for example, a base64 encoded HTML content with an embedded cross-site scripting payload. The attack is executed when the browser interprets the malicious content i.e., for example, when the victim clicks on the malicious link.
  • Cross-Site Scripting Using Doubled Characters, e.g. %3C%3Cscript
    The attacker bypasses input validation by using doubled characters in order to perform a cross-site scripting attack. Some filters fail to recognize dangerous sequences if they are preceded by repeated characters. For example, by doubling the < before a script command, (<<script or %3C%3script using URI encoding) the filters of some web applications may fail to recognize the presence of a script tag. If the targeted server is vulnerable to this type of bypass, the attacker can create a crafted URL or other trap to cause a victim to view a page on the targeted server where the malicious content is executed, as per a normal XSS attack.
  • Cross-Site Scripting Using Flash
    An attacker injects malicious script to global parameters in a Flash movie via a crafted URL. The malicious script is executed in the context of the Flash movie. As such, this is a form of Cross-Site Scripting (XSS), but the abilities granted to the Flash movie make this attack more flexible.
  • Cross-Site Scripting with Masking through Invalid Characters in Identifiers
    The attacker inserts invalid characters in identifiers to bypass application filtering of input. Filters may not scan beyond invalid characters but during later stages of processing content that follows these invalid characters may still be processed. This allows the attacker to sneak prohibited commands past filters and perform normally prohibited operations. Invalid characters may include null, carriage return, line feed or tab in an identifier. Successful bypassing of the filter can result in a XSS attack, resulting in the disclosure of web cookies or possibly other results.
  • Embedding Scripts in HTTP Query Strings
    A variant of cross-site scripting called "reflected" cross-site scripting, the HTTP Query Strings attack consists of passing a malicious script inside an otherwise valid HTTP request query string. This is of significant concern for sites that rely on dynamic, user-generated content such as bulletin boards, news sites, blogs, and web enabled administration GUIs. The malicious script may steal session data, browse history, probe files, or otherwise execute attacks on the client side. Once the attacker has prepared the malicious HTTP query it is sent to a victim user (perhaps by email, IM, or posted on an online forum), who clicks on a normal looking link that contains a poison query string. This technique can be made more effective through the use of services like http://tinyurl.com/, which makes very small URLs that will redirect to very large, complex ones. The victim will not know what he is really clicking on.
  • Simple Script Injection
    An attacker embeds malicious scripts in content that will be served to web browsers. The goal of the attack is for the target software, the client-side browser, to execute the script with the users' privilege level. An attack of this type exploits a programs' vulnerabilities that are brought on by allowing remote hosts to execute code and scripts. Web browsers, for example, have some simple security controls in place, but if a remote attacker is allowed to execute scripts (through injecting them in to user-generated content like bulletin boards) then these controls may be bypassed. Further, these attacks are very difficult for an end user to detect.
  • AJAX Fingerprinting
    This attack utilizes the frequent client-server roundtrips in Ajax conversation to scan a system. While Ajax does not open up new vulnerabilities per se, it does optimize them from an attacker point of view. In many XSS attacks the attacker must get a "hole in one" and successfully exploit the vulnerability on the victim side the first time, once the client is redirected the attacker has many chances to engage in follow on probes, but there is only one first chance. In a widely used web application this is not a major problem because 1 in a 1,000 is good enough in a widely used application. A common first step for an attacker is to footprint the environment to understand what attacks will work. Since footprinting relies on enumeration, the conversational pattern of rapid, multiple requests and responses that are typical in Ajax applications enable an attacker to look for many vulnerabilities, well-known ports, network locations and so on.
  • Embedding Script (XSS) in HTTP Headers
    An attack of this type exploits web applications that generate web content, such as links in a HTML page, based on unvalidated or improperly validated data submitted by other actors. XSS in HTTP Headers attacks target the HTTP headers which are hidden from most users and may not be validated by web applications.
  • XSS in IMG Tags
    Image tags are an often overlooked, but convenient, means for a Cross Site Scripting attack. The attacker can inject script contents into an image (IMG) tag in order to steal information from a victim's browser and execute malicious scripts.

    description Web pages with extremely long titles caused subsequent launches of Firefox browser to hang for up to a few minutes, or caused Firefox to crash on computers with insufficient memory. (CVE-2005-4134) Igor Bukanov discovered that the JavaScript engine did not properly declare some temporary variables. Under some rare circumstances, a malicious website could exploit this to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user. (CVE-2006-0292, CVE-2006-1742) The function XULDocument.persist() did not sufficiently validate the names of attributes. An attacker could exploit this to inject arbitrary XML code into the file 'localstore.rdf', which is read and evaluated at startup. This could include JavaScript commands that would be run with the user's privileges. (CVE-2006-0296) Due to a flaw in the HTML tag parser a specific sequence of HTML tags caused memory corruption. A malicious website could exploit this to crash the browser or even execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges. (CVE-2006-0749) Georgi Guninski discovered that embedded XBL scripts of websites could escalate their (normally reduced) privileges to get full privileges of the user if that page is viewed with 'Print Preview'. (CVE-2006-1727) The crypto.generateCRMFRequest() function had a flaw which could be exploited to run arbitrary code with the user's privileges. (CVE-2006-1728) Claus Jorgensen and Jesse Ruderman discovered that a text input box could be pre-filled with a filename and then turned into a file-upload control with the contents intact. A malicious website could exploit this to read any local file the user has read privileges for. (CVE-2006-1729) An integer overflow was detected in the handling of the CSS property 'letter-spacing'. A malicious website could exploit this to run arbitrary code with the user's privileges. (CVE-2006-1730) The methods valueOf.call() and .valueOf.apply() returned an object whose privileges were not properly confined to those of the caller, which made them vulnerable to cross-site scripting attacks. A malicious website could exploit this to modify the contents or steal confidential data (such as passwords) from other opened web pages. (CVE-2006-1731) The window.controllers array variable (CVE-2006-1732) and event handlers (CVE-2006-1741) were vulnerable to a similar attack. The privileged built-in XBL bindings were not fully protected from web content and could be accessed by calling valueOf.call() and valueOf.apply() on a method of that binding. A malicious website could exploit this to run arbitrary JavaScript code with the user's privileges. (CVE-2006-1733) It was possible to use the Object.watch() method to access an internal function object (the 'clone parent'). A malicious website could exploit this to execute arbitrary JavaScript code with the user's privileges. (CVE-2006-1734) By calling the XBL.method.eval() method in a special way it was possible to create JavaScript functions that would get compiled with the wrong privileges. A malicious website could exploit this to execute arbitrary JavaScript code with the user's privileges. (CVE-2006-1735) Michael Krax discovered that by layering a transparent image link to an executable on top of a visible (and presumably desirable) image a malicious site could fool the user to right-click and choose 'Save image as...' from the context menu, which would download the executable instead of the image. (CVE-2006-1736) Several crashes have been fixed which could be triggered by websites and involve memory corruption. These could potentially be exploited to execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges. (CVE-2006-1737, CVE-2006-1738, CVE-2006-1739, CVE-2006-1790) If the user has turned on the 'Entering secure site' modal warning dialog, it was possible to spoof the browser's secure-site indicators (the lock icon and the gold URL field background) by first loading the target secure site in a pop-up window, then changing its location to a different site, which retained the displayed secure-browsing indicators from the original site. (CVE-2006-1740). Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

    description Igor Bukanov discovered that the JavaScript engine did not properly declare some temporary variables. Under some rare circumstances, a malicious mail with embedded JavaScript could exploit this to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user. (CVE-2006-0292, CVE-2006-1742) The function XULDocument.persist() did not sufficiently validate the names of attributes. An attacker could exploit this to inject arbitrary XML code into the file 'localstore.rdf', which is read and evaluated at startup. This could include JavaScript commands that would be run with the user's privileges. (CVE-2006-0296) Due to a flaw in the HTML tag parser a specific sequence of HTML tags caused memory corruption. A malicious HTML email could exploit this to crash the browser or even execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges. (CVE-2006-0748) An invalid ordering of table-related tags caused Thunderbird to use a negative array index. A malicious HTML email could exploit this to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user. (CVE-2006-0749) Georgi Guninski discovered that forwarding mail in-line while using the default HTML 'rich mail' editor executed JavaScript embedded in the email message. Forwarding mail in-line is not the default setting but it is easily accessed through the 'Forward As' menu item. (CVE-2006-0884) As a privacy measure to prevent senders (primarily spammers) from tracking when email is read Thunderbird does not load remote content referenced from an HTML mail message until a user tells it to do so. This normally includes the content of frames and CSS files. It was discovered that it was possible to bypass this restriction by indirectly including remote content through an intermediate inline CSS script or frame. (CVE-2006-1045) Georgi Guninski discovered that embedded XBL scripts could escalate their (normally reduced) privileges to get full privileges of the user if the email is viewed with 'Print Preview'. (CVE-2006-1727) The crypto.generateCRMFRequest() function had a flaw which could be exploited to run arbitrary code with the user's privileges. (CVE-2006-1728) An integer overflow was detected in the handling of the CSS property 'letter-spacing'. A malicious HTML email could exploit this to run arbitrary code with the user's privileges. (CVE-2006-1730) The methods valueOf.call() and .valueOf.apply() returned an object whose privileges were not properly confined to those of the caller, which made them vulnerable to cross-site scripting attacks. A malicious email with embedded JavaScript code could exploit this to modify the contents or steal confidential data (such as passwords) from other opened web pages. (CVE-2006-1731) The window.controllers array variable (CVE-2006-1732) and event handlers (CVE-2006-1741) were vulnerable to a similar attack. The privileged built-in XBL bindings were not fully protected from web content and could be accessed by calling valueOf.call() and valueOf.apply() on a method of that binding. A malicious email could exploit this to run arbitrary JavaScript code with the user's privileges. (CVE-2006-1733) It was possible to use the Object.watch() method to access an internal function object (the 'clone parent'). A malicious email containing JavaScript code could exploit this to execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges. (CVE-2006-1734) By calling the XBL.method.eval() method in a special way it was possible to create JavaScript functions that would get compiled with the wrong privileges. A malicious email could exploit this to execute arbitrary JavaScript code with the user's privileges. (CVE-2006-1735) Several crashes have been fixed which could be triggered by specially crafted HTML content and involve memory corruption. These could potentially be exploited to execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges. (CVE-2006-1737, CVE-2006-1738, CVE-2006-1739, CVE-2006-1790) The 'enigmail' plugin has been updated to work with the new Thunderbird and Mozilla versions. Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

    description Several bugs were found in the way Firefox processes malformed JavaScript. A malicious web page could modify the content of a different open web page, possibly stealing sensitive information or conducting a cross-site scripting attack. (CVE-2006-1731, CVE-2006-1732, CVE-2006-1741) Several bugs were found in the way Firefox processes certain JavaScript actions. A malicious web page could execute arbitrary JavaScript instructions with the permissions of 'chrome', allowing the page to steal sensitive information or install browser malware. (CVE-2006-1727, CVE-2006-1728, CVE-2006-1733, CVE-2006-1734, CVE-2006-1735, CVE-2006-1742) Several bugs were found in the way Firefox processes malformed web pages. A carefully crafted malicious web page could cause the execution of arbitrary code as the user running Firefox.

If a browser is configured to display the non-default secure site modal warning dialog, it may be possible to trick a user into believing they are viewing a secure site. (CVE-2006-1740) A bug was found in the way Firefox allows JavaScript mutation events on 'input' form elements. A malicious web page could be created in such a way that when a user submits a form, an arbitrary file could be uploaded to the attacker. (CVE-2006-1729) Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory.

    description Several security related problems have been discovered in Mozilla Firefox. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following vulnerabilities : - CVE-2005-4134 Web pages with extremely long titles cause subsequent launches of the browser to appear to 'hang' for up to a few minutes, or even crash if the computer has insufficient memory. [MFSA-2006-03] - CVE-2006-0292 The JavaScript interpreter does not properly dereference objects, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code. [MFSA-2006-01] - CVE-2006-0293 The function allocation code allows attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code. [MFSA-2006-01] - CVE-2006-0296 XULDocument.persist() did not validate the attribute name, allowing an attacker to inject arbitrary XML and JavaScript code into localstore.rdf that would be read and acted upon during startup. [MFSA-2006-05] - CVE-2006-0748 An anonymous researcher for TippingPoint and the Zero Day Initiative reported that an invalid and nonsensical ordering of table-related tags can be exploited to execute arbitrary code. [MFSA-2006-27] - CVE-2006-0749 A particular sequence of HTML tags can cause memory corruption that can be exploited to execute arbitrary code. [MFSA-2006-18] - CVE-2006-1727 Georgi Guninski reported two variants of using scripts in an XBL control to gain chrome privileges when the page is viewed under 'Print Preview'. [MFSA-2006-25] - CVE-2006-1728 'shutdown' discovered that the crypto.generateCRMFRequest method can be used to run arbitrary code with the privilege of the user running the browser, which could enable an attacker to install malware. [MFSA-2006-24] - CVE-2006-1729 Claus Jorgensen reported that a text input box can be pre-filled with a filename and then turned into a file-upload control, allowing a malicious website to steal any local file whose name they can guess. [MFSA-2006-23] - CVE-2006-1730 An anonymous researcher for TippingPoint and the Zero Day Initiative discovered an integer overflow triggered by the CSS letter-spacing property, which could be exploited to execute arbitrary code. [MFSA-2006-22] - CVE-2006-1731 'moz_bug_r_a4' discovered that some internal functions return prototypes instead of objects, which allows remote attackers to conduct cross-site scripting attacks. [MFSA-2006-19] - CVE-2006-1732 'shutdown' discovered that it is possible to bypass same-origin protections, allowing a malicious site to inject script into content from another site, which could allow the malicious page to steal information such as cookies or passwords from the other site, or perform transactions on the user's behalf if the user were already logged in. [MFSA-2006-17] - CVE-2006-1733 'moz_bug_r_a4' discovered that the compilation scope of privileged built-in XBL bindings is not fully protected from web content and can still be executed which could be used to execute arbitrary JavaScript, which could allow an attacker to install malware such as viruses and password sniffers. [MFSA-2006-16] - CVE-2006-1734 'shutdown' discovered that it is possible to access an internal function object which could then be used to run arbitrary JavaScript code with full permissions of the user running the browser, which could be used to install spyware or viruses. [MFSA-2006-15] - CVE-2006-1735 It is possible to create JavaScript functions that would get compiled with the wrong privileges, allowing an attacker to run code of their choice with full permissions of the user running the browser, which could be used to install spyware or viruses. [MFSA-2006-14] - CVE-2006-1736 It is possible to trick users into downloading and saving an executable file via an image that is overlaid by a transparent image link that points to the executable. [MFSA-2006-13] - CVE-2006-1737 An integer overflow allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary bytecode via JavaScript with a large regular expression. [MFSA-2006-11] - CVE-2006-1738 An unspecified vulnerability allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service. [MFSA-2006-11] - CVE-2006-1739 Certain Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) can cause an out-of-bounds array write and buffer overflow that could lead to a denial of service and the possible execution of arbitrary code. [MFSA-2006-11] - CVE-2006-1740 It is possible for remote attackers to spoof secure site indicators such as the locked icon by opening the trusted site in a popup window, then changing the location to a malicious site. [MFSA-2006-12] - CVE-2006-1741 'shutdown' discovered that it is possible to inject arbitrary JavaScript code into a page on another site using a modal alert to suspend an event handler while a new page is being loaded. This could be used to steal confidential information. [MFSA-2006-09] - CVE-2006-1742 Igor Bukanov discovered that the JavaScript engine does not properly handle temporary variables, which might allow remote attackers to trigger operations on freed memory and cause memory corruption. [MFSA-2006-10] - CVE-2006-1790 A regression fix that could lead to memory corruption allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code. [MFSA-2006-11]
