Novell GroupWise Mobile Server Bugs Permit Denial of Service and Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1018454
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1018454
CVE Reference:   CVE-2007-2592   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Jul 25 2007
Impact:   Denial of service via network, 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): Mobile Server 1.0
Description:   Some vulnerabilities were reported in Novell GroupWise Mobile Server. A remote user can cause denial of service conditions. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks. A remote user can determine user names.

A remote user can deactivate all users on the target system.

A remote user can access certain ASP scripts in the '/usrmgr/' directory to determine user names and the mail server address.

Several ASP scripts do not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input before displaying the input. A remote user can create a specially crafted URL that, when loaded 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 GroupWise 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 vendor credits Johannes Greil of SEC Consult with discovering these vulnerabilities.

[Editor's note: The vulnerabilities reside in underlying software from Nokia.]

Impact:   A remote user can deactivate user accounts.

A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the GroupWise 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.

A remote user can determine usernames.

Solution:   The vendor has issued a fix (1.0 HP1 for Novell GroupWise Mobile Server).
