Advisory ID: SYSS-2019-045
Product: "Scoutnet Kalender" for WordPress
Manufacturer: Scoutnet and Björn Stromberg
Affected Version(s): 1.1.0
Tested Version(s): 1.1.0
Vulnerability Type: Cross-Site Scripting (CWE-79)
Risk Level: Medium
Solution Status: Open
Manufacturer Notification: 2019-10-23
Solution Date: -
Public Disclosure: 2019-12-09
CVE Reference: CVE-2019-19198
Author of Advisory: Simon Moser, SySS GmbH

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

Overview:

"Scoutnet Kalender" is a plug-in for WordPress to display one oder many
Scoutnet calendars as a widget, on a page or an article.

Due to a missing input sanitation, it is vulnerable to cross-site scripting.

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

Vulnerability Details:

The plug-in allows to include calendars from Scoutnet into WordPress websites.
Calendars are not only included by websites administrated by the same person
as the calendar but also by other sites. When events from a calendar are
included, the data is not being sanitized. This allows an attacker with control
over an embedded calendar to inject scripts into the attacked site.

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

Proof of Concept (PoC):

1. Create an event with the following value of the "Info" field:
<script>alert("Cross-Site Scripting");</script>

2. Save the event

3. Visit the page where the calendar is embedded

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

Solution:

As long as the default template is not changed by the manufacturer, SySS GmbH
recommends to change the provided template to sanitize fields controlled by
other users. If this is not possible because interactive content needs to be
included, the set of users with permissions to create and change events should
be as small as possible.
