Horde Framework and Horde IMP search.php cross site scripting

scip AG Vulnerability ID 2457 (08/16/2006)
http://www.scip.ch/cgi-bin/smss/showadvf.pl?id=2457

I. INTRODUCTION

Horde is an open-source web application framework based on PHP. It
offers popular applications, such as the Horde IMP mail client, a
groupware and wiki solution.

More information is available on the official Horde product web site at
the following URL:

http://www.horde.org/

II. DESCRIPTION

Marc Ruef found several web-based vulnerabilities that were identified
in Horde 3.0.4 and verified for all versions prior to 3.1.2 and IMP
prior to 4.1.3.

On IMP search screen, some of the given fields are vulnerable to a cross
site scripting attack:

<i>Virtual folder label:</i>&nbsp;<input type="text" id="vfolder_label"
name="vfolder_label" value=""><script>alert('scipAG');</script>" />

An attacker might be able to inject script code. However, it is
important so see that this vulnerability is exploitable only with HTTP
POST requests. If the attacker has an account on the local machine, they
can create a shared folder that the victim has access to with a
malicious name.

III. EXPLOITATION

Classic script injection techniques within a browser session can be used
to exploit this vulnerabilities. [1, 2]

A plugin for our open-source exploiting framework "Attack Tool Kit"
(ATK) will be published in the near future. [3]

IV. IMPACT

Because non-authenticated parts of the software are affected too, this
vulnerabilities are serious for every secure environment.
Non-authenticated users might be able to exploit this flaw to gain
elevated privileges (e.g. extracting sensitive cookie information or
launch a buffer overflow attack against another web browser).

The other parts are affecting authenticated parts. This requires a
legitimate user to exploit the vulnerabilities. However, because cross
site scripting attacks could be launched from external attackers, these
vulnerabilities still become a high risk rating.

V. DETECTION

Detection of web based attacks requires a specialized web proxy and/or
intrusion detection system. Patterns for such a detection are available
and easy to implement.

VI. SOLUTION

The cross site scripting vulnerability (4) has been fixed in CVS HEAD
(Juli 2006) and FRAMEWORK_3. The other vulnerabilities were addressed in
the current release 3.1.2 and IMP 4.1.3.

VII. VENDOR RESPONSE

The Horde team has been informed at 07/04/2006 via email to
security-at-horde.org. A first response came back on the same day.
Several email messages were exchanged to discuss the vulnerabilities and
to co-ordinate the disclosure of this advisory.
