Exploitability:
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.

    NASL id SUSE_MOZILLAFIREFOX-5890.NASL
    description The Mozilla Firefox browser was updated to version 2.0.0.19, fixing various security issues and stability problems. The following security issues were fixed : - Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 reported vulnerabilities in the session-restore feature by which content could be injected into an incorrect document storage location, including storage locations for other domains. An attacker could utilize these issues to violate the browser's same-origin policy and perform an XSS attack while SessionStore data is being restored. moz_bug_r_a4 also reported that one variant could be used by an attacker to run arbitrary JavaScript with chrome privileges. (MFSA 2008-69 / CVE-2008-5513) - Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 reported that an XBL binding, when attached to an unloaded document, can be used to violate the same-origin policy and execute arbitrary JavaScript within the context of a different website. moz_bug_r_a4 also reported two vulnerabilities by which page content can pollute XPCNativeWrappers and run arbitary JavaScript with chrome priviliges. Thunderbird shares the browser engine with Firefox and could be vulnerable if JavaScript were to be enabled in mail. This is not the default setting and we strongly discourage users from running JavaScript in mail. Workaround Disable JavaScript until a version containing these fixes can be installed. (MFSA 2008-68 / CVE-2008-5512 / CVE-2008-5511) - Kojima Hajime reported that unlike literal null characters which were handled correctly, the escaped form '\0' was ignored by the CSS parser and treated as if it was not present in the CSS input string. This issue could potentially be used to bypass script sanitization routines in web applications. The severity of this issue was determined to be low. (MFSA 2008-67 / CVE-2008-5510) - Perl developer Chip Salzenberg reported that certain control characters, when placed at the beginning of a URL, would lead to incorrect parsing resulting in a malformed URL being output by the parser. IBM researchers Justin Schuh, Tom Cross, and Peter William also reported a related symptom as part of their research that resulted in MFSA 2008-37. There was no direct security impact from this issue and its effect was limited to the improper rendering of hyperlinks containing specific characters. The severity of this issue was determined to be low. (MFSA 2008-66 / CVE-2008-5508) - Google security researcher Chris Evans reported that a website could access a limited amount of data from a different domain by loading a same-domain JavaScript URL which redirects to an off-domain target resource containing data which is not parsable as JavaScript. Upon attempting to load the data as JavaScript a syntax error is generated that can reveal some of the file context via the window.onerror DOM API. This issue could be used by a malicious website to steal private data from users who are authenticated on the redirected website. How much data could be at risk would depend on the format of the data and how the JavaScript parser attempts to interpret it. For most files the amount of data that can be recovered would be limited to the first word or two. Some data files might allow deeper probing with repeated loads. Thunderbird shares the browser engine with Firefox and could be vulnerable if JavaScript were to be enabled in mail. This is not the default setting and we strongly discourage users from running JavaScript in mail. Workaround Disable JavaScript until a version containing these fixes can be installed. (MFSA 2008-65 / CVE-2008-5507) - Marius Schilder of Google Security reported that when a XMLHttpRequest is made to a same-origin resource which 302 redirects to a resource in a different domain, the response from the cross-domain resource is readable by the site issuing the XHR. Cookies marked HttpOnly were not readable, but other potentially sensitive data could be revealed in the XHR response including URL parameters and content in the response body. Thunderbird shares the browser engine with Firefox and could be vulnerable if JavaScript were to be enabled in mail. This is not the default setting and we strongly discourage users from running JavaScript in mail. Workaround Disable JavaScript until a version containing these fixes can be installed. (MFSA 2008-64 / CVE-2008-5506) - Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 reported an additional variation on the feed preview vulnerabilities fixed in Firefox 2.0.0.17. moz_bug_r_a4 demonstrated that it was still possible to use the feed preview as a vector for JavaScript privilege escalation. An attacker could use this issue to run arbitrary JavaScript with chrome privileges. Firefox 3 is not affected by this issue. Workaround Disable JavaScript until a version containing these fixes can be installed. (MFSA 2008-62 / CVE-2008-5504) - Mozilla developer Boris Zbarsky reported that XBL bindings could be used to read data from other domains, a violation of the same-origin policy. The severity of this issue was determined to be moderate due to several mitigating factors: The target document requires a element in the XBL namespace in order to be read. The reader of the data needs to know the id attribute of the binding being read in advance. It is unlikely that web services will expose private data in the manner described above. Firefox 3 is not affected by this issue. Thunderbird shares the browser engine with Firefox and could be vulnerable if JavaScript were to be enabled in mail. This is not the default setting and we strongly discourage users from running JavaScript in mail. Workaround Products built from the Mozilla 1.9.0 branch and later, Firefox 3 for example, are not affected by this issue. Upgrading to one of these products is a reliable workaround for this particular issue and it is also Mozilla's recommendation that the most current version of any Mozilla product be used. Alternatively, you can disable JavaScript until a version containing these fixes can be installed. (MFSA 2008-61 / CVE-2008-5503) - Mozilla developers identified and fixed several stability bugs in the browser engine used in Firefox and other Mozilla-based products. Some of these crashes showed evidence of memory corruption under certain circumstances and we presume that with enough effort at least some of these could be exploited to run arbitrary code. Thunderbird shares the browser engine with Firefox and could be vulnerable if JavaScript were to be enabled in mail. This is not the default setting and we strongly discourage users from running JavaScript in mail. Without further investigation we cannot rule out the possibility that for some of these an attacker might be able to prepare memory for exploitation through some means other than JavaScript such as large images. Workaround Disable JavaScript until a version containing these fixes can be installed. (MFSA 2008-60 / CVE-2008-5500)

    description Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A web page containing malicious content could cause Firefox to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running Firefox. (CVE-2008-5500, CVE-2008-5501, CVE-2008-5502, CVE-2008-5511, CVE-2008-5512, CVE-2008-5513) Several flaws were found in the way malformed content was processed. A website containing specially crafted content could potentially trick a Firefox user into surrendering sensitive information. (CVE-2008-5506, CVE-2008-5507) A flaw was found in the way Firefox stored attributes in XML User Interface Language (XUL) elements. A website could use this flaw to track users across browser sessions, even if users did not allow the site to store cookies in the victim's browser. (CVE-2008-5505) A flaw was found in the way malformed URLs were processed by Firefox. This flaw could prevent various URL sanitization mechanisms from properly parsing a malicious URL. (CVE-2008-5508) A flaw was found in Firefox's CSS parser. A malicious web page could inject NULL characters into a CSS input string, possibly bypassing an application's script sanitization routines. (CVE-2008-5510) For technical details regarding these flaws, please see the Mozilla security advisories for Firefox 3.0.5. You can find a link to the Mozilla advisories in the References section. Note: after the errata packages are installed, Firefox must be restarted for the update to take effect.

    description The installed version of Firefox is earlier than 2.0.0.19. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues : - There are several stability bugs in the browser engine that may lead to crashes with evidence of memory corruption. (MFSA 2008-60) - XBL bindings can be used to read data from other domains. (MFSA 2008-61) - The feed preview still allows for JavaScript privilege escalation. (MFSA 2008-62) - Sensitive data may be disclosed in an XHR response when an XMLHttpRequest is made to a same-origin resource, which 302 redirects to a resource in a different domain. (MFSA 2008-64) - A website may be able to access a limited amount of data from a different domain by loading a same-domain JavaScript URL which redirects to an off-domain target resource containing data which is not parsable as JavaScript. (MFSA 2008-65) - Errors arise when parsing URLs with leading whitespace and control characters. (MFSA 2008-66) - An escaped null byte is ignored by the CSS parser and treated as if it was not present in the CSS input string. (MFSA 2008-67) - Cross-site scripting and JavaScript privilege escalation are possible. (MFSA 2008-68) - Cross-site scripting vulnerabilities in SessionStore may allow for violating the browser's same-origin policy and performing an XSS attack or running arbitrary JavaScript with chrome privileges. (MFSA 2008-69) - Creating a Select object with a very large length can result in memory exhaustion, causing a denial of service. (CVE-2009-2535) Note that Mozilla is not planning further security / stability updates for Firefox 2.

  • NASL family SuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL id SUSE_MOZILLAFIREFOX-5885.NASL
    description The Mozilla Firefox browser was updated to version 2.0.0.19, fixing various security issues and stability problems. The following security issues were fixed : MFSA 2008-69 / CVE-2008-5513: Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 reported vulnerabilities in the session-restore feature by which content could be injected into an incorrect document storage location, including storage locations for other domains. An attacker could utilize these issues to violate the browser's same-origin policy and perform an XSS attack while SessionStore data is being restored. moz_bug_r_a4 also reported that one variant could be used by an attacker to run arbitrary JavaScript with chrome privileges. MFSA 2008-68 / CVE-2008-5512 / CVE-2008-5511: Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 reported that an XBL binding, when attached to an unloaded document, can be used to violate the same-origin policy and execute arbitrary JavaScript within the context of a different website. moz_bug_r_a4 also reported two vulnerabilities by which page content can pollute XPCNativeWrappers and run arbitary JavaScript with chrome priviliges. Thunderbird shares the browser engine with Firefox and could be vulnerable if JavaScript were to be enabled in mail. This is not the default setting and we strongly discourage users from running JavaScript in mail. Workaround Disable JavaScript until a version containing these fixes can be installed. MFSA 2008-67 / CVE-2008-5510: Kojima Hajime reported that unlike literal null characters which were handled correctly, the escaped form '\0' was ignored by the CSS parser and treated as if it was not present in the CSS input string. This issue could potentially be used to bypass script sanitization routines in web applications. The severity of this issue was determined to be low. MFSA 2008-66 / CVE-2008-5508: Perl developer Chip Salzenberg reported that certain control characters, when placed at the beginning of a URL, would lead to incorrect parsing resulting in a malformed URL being output by the parser. IBM researchers Justin Schuh, Tom Cross, and Peter William also reported a related symptom as part of their research that resulted in MFSA 2008-37. There was no direct security impact from this issue and its effect was limited to the improper rendering of hyperlinks containing specific characters. The severity of this issue was determined to be low. MFSA 2008-65 / CVE-2008-5507: Google security researcher Chris Evans reported that a website could access a limited amount of data from a different domain by loading a same-domain JavaScript URL which redirects to an off-domain target resource containing data which is not parsable as JavaScript. Upon attempting to load the data as JavaScript a syntax error is generated that can reveal some of the file context via the window.onerror DOM API. This issue could be used by a malicious website to steal private data from users who are authenticated on the redirected website. How much data could be at risk would depend on the format of the data and how the JavaScript parser attempts to interpret it. For most files the amount of data that can be recovered would be limited to the first word or two. Some data files might allow deeper probing with repeated loads. Thunderbird shares the browser engine with Firefox and could be vulnerable if JavaScript were to be enabled in mail. This is not the default setting and we strongly discourage users from running JavaScript in mail. Workaround Disable JavaScript until a version containing these fixes can be installed. MFSA 2008-64 / CVE-2008-5506: Marius Schilder of Google Security reported that when a XMLHttpRequest is made to a same-origin resource which 302 redirects to a resource in a different domain, the response from the cross-domain resource is readable by the site issuing the XHR. Cookies marked HttpOnly were not readable, but other potentially sensitive data could be revealed in the XHR response including URL parameters and content in the response body. Thunderbird shares the browser engine with Firefox and could be vulnerable if JavaScript were to be enabled in mail. This is not the default setting and we strongly discourage users from running JavaScript in mail. Workaround Disable JavaScript until a version containing these fixes can be installed. MFSA 2008-62 / CVE-2008-5504: Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 reported an additional variation on the feed preview vulnerabilities fixed in Firefox 2.0.0.17. moz_bug_r_a4 demonstrated that it was still possible to use the feed preview as a vector for JavaScript privilege escalation. An attacker could use this issue to run arbitrary JavaScript with chrome privileges. Firefox 3 is not affected by this issue. Workaround Disable JavaScript until a version containing these fixes can be installed. MFSA 2008-61 / CVE-2008-5503: Mozilla developer Boris Zbarsky reported that XBL bindings could be used to read data from other domains, a violation of the same-origin policy. The severity of this issue was determined to be moderate due to several mitigating factors: The target document requires a element in the XBL namespace in order to be read. The reader of the data needs to know the id attribute of the binding being read in advance. It is unlikely that web services will expose private data in the manner described above. Firefox 3 is not affected by this issue. Thunderbird shares the browser engine with Firefox and could be vulnerable if JavaScript were to be enabled in mail. This is not the default setting and we strongly discourage users from running JavaScript in mail. Workaround Products built from the Mozilla 1.9.0 branch and later, Firefox 3 for example, are not affected by this issue. Upgrading to one of these products is a reliable workaround for this particular issue and it is also Mozilla's recommendation that the most current version of any Mozilla product be used. Alternatively, you can disable JavaScript until a version containing these fixes can be installed. MFSA 2008-60 / CVE-2008-5500: Mozilla developers identified and fixed several stability bugs in the browser engine used in Firefox and other Mozilla-based products. Some of these crashes showed evidence of memory corruption under certain circumstances and we presume that with enough effort at least some of these could be exploited to run arbitrary code. Thunderbird shares the browser engine with Firefox and could be vulnerable if JavaScript were to be enabled in mail. This is not the default setting and we strongly discourage users from running JavaScript in mail. Without further investigation we cannot rule out the possibility that for some of these an attacker might be able to prepare memory for exploitation through some means other than JavaScript such as large images. Workaround Disable JavaScript until a version containing these fixes can be installed.

(MFSA 2008-64) - A website may be able to access a limited amount of data from a different domain by loading a same-domain JavaScript URL that redirects to an off-domain target resource containing data which is not parsable as JavaScript. (MFSA 2008-65) - Errors arise when parsing URLs with leading whitespace and control characters. (MFSA 2008-66) - An escaped null byte is ignored by the CSS parser and treated as if it was not present in the CSS input string. (MFSA 2008-67) - XSS and JavaScript privilege escalation are possible. (MFSA 2008-68) - XSS vulnerabilities in SessionStore may allow for violating the browser's same-origin policy and performing an XSS attack or running arbitrary JavaScript with chrome privileges.

    description Updated SeaMonkey packages that fix security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4. This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. SeaMonkey is an open source Web browser, email and newsgroup client, IRC chat client, and HTML editor. Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A web page containing malicious content could cause SeaMonkey to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2008-5500, CVE-2008-5501, CVE-2008-5502, CVE-2008-5504, CVE-2008-5511, CVE-2008-5512, CVE-2008-5513) Several flaws were found in the way malformed content was processed. A website containing specially crafted content could potentially trick a SeaMonkey user into surrendering sensitive information. (CVE-2008-5503, CVE-2008-5506, CVE-2008-5507) A flaw was found in the way malformed URLs were processed by SeaMonkey. This flaw could prevent various URL sanitization mechanisms from properly parsing a malicious URL. (CVE-2008-5508) Note: after the errata packages are installed, SeaMonkey must be restarted for the update to take effect. All SeaMonkey users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to resolve these issues.
