ID CVE-2009-0815
Summary The jumpUrl mechanism in class.tslib_fe.php in TYPO3 3.3.x through 3.8.x, 4.0 before 4.0.12, 4.1 before 4.1.10, 4.2 before 4.2.6, and 4.3alpha1 leaks a hash secret (juHash) in an error message, which allows remote attackers to read arbitrary files by including the hash in a request.

  • Subverting Environment Variable Values
    The attacker directly or indirectly modifies environment variables used by or controlling the target software. The attacker's goal is to cause the target software to deviate from its expected operation in a manner that benefits the attacker.
  • Footprinting
    An attacker engages in probing and exploration activity to identify constituents and properties of the target. Footprinting is a general term to describe a variety of information gathering techniques, often used by attackers in preparation for some attack. It consists of using tools to learn as much as possible about the composition, configuration, and security mechanisms of the targeted application, system or network. Information that might be collected during a footprinting effort could include open ports, applications and their versions, network topology, and similar information. While footprinting is not intended to be damaging (although certain activities, such as network scans, can sometimes cause disruptions to vulnerable applications inadvertently) it may often pave the way for more damaging attacks.
  • Exploiting Trust in Client (aka Make the Client Invisible)
    An attack of this type exploits a programs' vulnerabilities in client/server communication channel authentication and data integrity. It leverages the implicit trust a server places in the client, or more importantly, that which the server believes is the client. An attacker executes this type of attack by placing themselves in the communication channel between client and server such that communication directly to the server is possible where the server believes it is communicating only with a valid client. There are numerous variations of this type of attack.
  • Browser Fingerprinting
    An attacker carefully crafts small snippets of Java Script to efficiently detect the type of browser the potential victim is using. Many web-based attacks need prior knowledge of the web browser including the version of browser to ensure successful exploitation of a vulnerability. Having this knowledge allows an attacker to target the victim with attacks that specifically exploit known or zero day weaknesses in the type and version of the browser used by the victim. Automating this process via Java Script as a part of the same delivery system used to exploit the browser is considered more efficient as the attacker can supply a browser fingerprinting method and integrate it with exploit code, all contained in Java Script and in response to the same web page request by the browser.
  • Session Credential Falsification through Prediction
    This attack targets predictable session ID in order to gain privileges. The attacker can predict the session ID used during a transaction to perform spoofing and session hijacking.
  • Reusing Session IDs (aka Session Replay)
    This attack targets the reuse of valid session ID to spoof the target system in order to gain privileges. The attacker tries to reuse a stolen session ID used previously during a transaction to perform spoofing and session hijacking. Another name for this type of attack is Session Replay.
  • Using Slashes in Alternate Encoding
    This attack targets the encoding of the Slash characters. An attacker would try to exploit common filtering problems related to the use of the slashes characters to gain access to resources on the target host. Directory-driven systems, such as file systems and databases, typically use the slash character to indicate traversal between directories or other container components. For murky historical reasons, PCs (and, as a result, Microsoft OSs) choose to use a backslash, whereas the UNIX world typically makes use of the forward slash. The schizophrenic result is that many MS-based systems are required to understand both forms of the slash. This gives the attacker many opportunities to discover and abuse a number of common filtering problems. The goal of this pattern is to discover server software that only applies filters to one version, but not the other.

    description Secunia reports : Some vulnerabilities have been reported in Typo3, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks and disclose sensitive information. Input passed via unspecified fields to the backend user interface 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. An error in the 'jumpUrl' mechanism can be exploited to read arbitrary files from local resources by disclosing a hash secret used to restrict file access.

    description The 'jumpUrl' mechanism in the version of TYPO3 installed on the remote host, which is used to track access, exposes the value of a hash secret used to validate requests. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can leverage this issue to view the contents of arbitrary files on the remote host subject to the privileges of the web server user id.

    title TYPO3 'jumpUrl' Mechanism Information Disclosure
  • NASL family Debian Local Security Checks
    description Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the TYPO3 web content management framework. Marcus Krause and Michael Stucki from the TYPO3 security team discovered that the jumpUrl mechanism discloses secret hashes enabling a remote attacker to bypass access control by submitting the correct value as a URL parameter and thus being able to read the content of arbitrary files. Jelmer de Hen and Dmitry Dulepov discovered multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities in the backend user interface allowing remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML. As it is very likely that your encryption key has been exposed we strongly recommend to change your encryption key via the install tool after installing the update.
