NASA Tri-Agency Climate Education (TrACE) 1.0 XSS
Posted Oct 26, 2012
Authored by LiquidWorm | Site zeroscience.mk

The Tri-Agency Climate Education (TrACE) Catalog provides search and browse access to a catalog of educational products and resources. TrACE focuses on climate education resources that have been developed by initiatives funded through NASA, NOAA, and NSF, comprising a tri-agency collaboration around climate education. The application suffers from a reflected cross site scripting vulnerability when input is passed to the 'product_id', 'pi', 'project_id' and 'funder' GET parameters in 'trace_results.php' script which is not properly sanitized before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site. Version 1.0 is affected.
