Apache OFBiz Input Validation Flaw Lets Remote Conduct Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1035514
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1035514
CVE Reference:   CVE-2015-3268   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Apr 11 2016
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): 12.04.0 - 12.04.05; 13.07.01, 13.07.02
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Apache OFBiz. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The software does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input before displaying the input. A remote user can cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the Apache OFBiz software and will run in the security context of that site. As a result, the code will be able to access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.

The description attribute of the display-entity element is affected.

The original advisory is available at:

https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OFBIZ-6506
