Technical Details, Description & Proof of Concept (PoC):

========================================================

After installing Wordpress I add the plugin " Nextend Facebook Connect" witch allow you to login Wordpress with Facebook account.

During my test I find out that the “redirect_to” parameter is vulnerable to Reflected XSS attack.


To reach to root of the problem, I took a look in the plugin source code and realized that the “new_fb_sign_button()” witch located in the file “nextend-facebook-connect.php”.

The problematic function are locate in line 432:
http://www.siz.co.il/my.php?i=djvy5z2yhczl.png


As you can see in the line 432, the function don’t escapes HTML tags or other dangerous symbols.

When attacker injects the Javascript code in the URL the function runs the code, as you can see:
http://www.siz.co.il/my.php?i=zeu3dnmw5ktz.png

And pop the alert window.


Solution - Fix & Patch:

=======================

In order to solve this security flaw you need to add the “htmlentities” function. (http://php.net/htmlentities)
