SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1027629

Date:  Oct 9 2012
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information

Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Microsoft Office InfoPath. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The HTML sanitizer does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied 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 Microsoft Office InfoPath 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.

Drew Hintz of Google Security Team reported this vulnerability.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the Microsoft Office InfoPath 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.
