SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1020110
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1020110
CVE Reference:   CVE-2008-2518   (Links to External Site)
Updated:  Jun 6 2008
Original Entry Date:  May 25 2008
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): 6.1 prior to SP9, 7.0 Update 2 and prior
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Sun Java System Web Server in the advanced search feature. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The advanced search page 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 Sun Java System Web Server 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 vulnerability resides in 'search/advanced.jsp'.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the Sun Java System Web Server software, 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.
