(2) Vulnerability Details:

SITEFACT web application has a computer cyber security bug problem. It can be exploited by XSS attacks. This may allow a remote attacker to create a specially crafted request that would execute arbitrary script code in a user’s browser session within the trust relationship between their browser and the server.

Several other similar products 0-day vulnerabilities have been found by some other bug hunter researchers before. SITEFACT has patched some of them. The Full Disclosure mailing list is a public forum for detailed discussion of vulnerabilities and exploitation techniques, as well as tools, papers, news, and events of interest to the community. FD differs from other security lists in its open nature and support for researchers’ right to decide how to disclose their own discovered bugs. The full disclosure movement has been credited with forcing vendors to better secure their products and to publicly acknowledge and fix flaws rather than hide them. Vendor legal intimidation and censorship attempts are not tolerated here! It also publishes suggestions, advisories, solutions details related to XSS vulnerabilities and cyber intelligence recommendations.

 

(2.1) The first programming flaw occurs at “/index.cfm?" page with “&res" “&skt" “&pid" parameters.

 

(2.2) The second programming flaw occurs at login domain “/index.cfm?" page with “&sid" parameter.

Weather Channel Website Vulnerable to Reflected XSS Attacks

cloud_computing_coding_security_lock_thinkstock_466683417-100412455-primary.idge
 

Popular Weather Channel web site (Weather.com) has been found to be vulnerable to a reflected Cross-Site Scripting flaw, according to security researcher Wang Jing’s research. The vulnerability lies in that Weather.com does not filter malicious script codes when constructing HTML tags with its URLs. This way, an attacker just adds a malicious script at the end of the URL and executes it.

“If The Weather Channel’s users were exploited, their Identity may be stolen,” Jing said via email. “At the same time, attackers may use the vulnerability to spy users’ habits, access sensitive information, alter browser functionality, perform denial of service attacks, etc.”

Wang Jing is a Ph.D student from School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. He found that at list 76.3% of Weather Channel website links were vulnerable to XSS attacks. Attackers just need to add scripts at end of Weather Channel’s URLs. Then the scripts will be executed.

New York Times Articles Before 2013 May Vulnerable to XSS Attack

Information pinned on noticeboard

New York Times articles’ pages dated before 2013 may suffer from an XSS (Cross-site Scripting) vulnerability, according to the report posted by security researcher Wang Jing. Wang is a mathematics Ph.D student from School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. He published his discovery in well-known security mail list Full Disclosure.

 

According to Wang, all pages before 2013 that contain buttons such as “PRINT”,”SINGLE PAGE”, “Page” and “NEXT PAGE” are affected by the XSS vulnerability. Meanwhile, the researcher also published a proof of concept video to prove the existence of the XSS flaw.

 

As of yet, there are no known cases of criminals exploiting the Times’ XSS issue in order to attack users. However, according to Wang, the threat is possible, and the New York Times has a big enough audience that an XSS attack, even via its older articles, could still affect a broad number of users. The affected New York Times articles are still indexed in Google search engines, and are still frequently hyperlinked in other articles.

 

However according to the researcher, New York Times has now a much safer mechanism, implemented sometime in 2013, that sanitizes all URLs sent to its server.

 

Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities usually reside in web applications and can be used by attackers to modify the normal flow of the web page. A cybercriminal can use it easily to perform URL redirect, mine for victim’s browser details, session hijacking, phishing, or even steal cookies.

 

XSS issues are not entirely uncommon. So far we have seen that Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Yahoo and Facebook all had this kind issue reported.
