Novell QuickFinder Server Input Validation Flaws in HTTP POST Parameters Permit Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1021695
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1021695
CVE Reference:   CVE-2009-0611   (Links to External Site)
Updated:  Feb 19 2009
Original Entry Date:  Feb 10 2009
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information
Exploit Included:  Yes  

Description:   Ivan Sanchez from NULL CODE SERVICES reported a vulnerability in Novell QuickFinder Server. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

Several scripts do not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input before displaying the input. A remote user can create a specially crafted HTTP POST request that, when submitted by a target user, will cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the Novell QuickFinder 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 'siteloc' parameter of the 'displayaddsite' function is affected.

The 'generalproperties site' parameter of the 'globalsearchsite' function is affected.

The 'clusterserviceproperties site' parameter of the 'services, synchronization' function is affected.

The 'adminurl' parameter of the 'querystring' function is affected.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the Novell QuickFinder 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.
Solution:   No solution was available at the time of this entry.

Cause:   Input validation error
Underlying OS:  

Message History:   None.

Overview
--------

If your company's Web site is like most, it's not lacking in information. While your site's visitors have access to massive amounts of data, they may benefit from a faster, 
more efficient way to pinpoint what they're looking for: QuickFinder Server (formerly NetWareŽ Web Search) from Novell.

Unlike all-Web search engines, QuickFinder is targeted at the Enterprise. General Internet search engines index many Web sites and their component pages, but they either cannot or do not index all available content. Perhaps that's the reason more than 7
