Vendor description:

Business recommendation:
------------------------
By exploiting this vulnerability, users that are able to create or edit
content, can attack other users of confluence. An attacker might be able to
gain access to otherwise protected information in confluence.

It is recommended to upgrade to the latest version of RefinedWiki Original
Theme.

Vulnerability overview/description:
-----------------------------------
1) Persistent Cross-Site Scripting

The vulnerability can be used to persistently include HTML- or JavaScript
code to the "Activity Stream" of confluence. The code is executed in the
browser of users if they visit the manipulated site. The vulnerability can be
used to change the contents of the displayed site, redirect to other sites or
steal user credentials. Additionally, confluence users are potential victims
of browser exploits and JavaScript Trojans.


Proof of concept:
-----------------
1) Persistent Cross-Site Scripting
A user with the necessary permissions to create or edit content in Confluence
can exploit this vulnerability by placing the XSS payload inside the
vulnerable POST parameter "versionComment" as shown in the following request.

> POST /pages/doeditpage.action?pageId=111111 HTTP/1.1
> [...]
> atl_token=5aabd74e50724eaac8290a3447d9f6e7a179559e&originalVersion=5
> &title=Title&wysiwygContent=[REMOVED]&watchPageAfterComment=true
> &versionComment=<script>alert(document.cookie)</script>
> &notifyWatchers=true&confirm=Save&viewPermissionsUsers=
> &editPermissionsUsers=&viewPermissionsGroups=&editPermissionsGroups=
> &parentPageString=&moveHierarchy=true&position=&targetId=&draftId=0
> &entityId=9012708&newSpaceKey=tools

The submitted XSS payload gets executed every time a user visits the activity
stream of the edited page.
