|Discovered and Provided:||High-Tech Bridge Security Research Lab|
High-Tech Bridge Security Research Lab discovered multiple XSS vulnerabilities in glFusion, which can be exploited to perform Cross-Site Scripting attacks.
glFusion has a "bad_behaviour" plugin (installed by default) that verifies HTTP Referer, aimed to protect against spambots. The plugin also makes reflected XSS attacks against the application a little bit more complex. To bypass the security restriction PoC (Proof-of-Concept) codes for vulnerabilities 1.1 – 1.3 modify the HTTP Referer header. These PoCs were successfully tested in the latest available version of Mozilla Firefox (18.0.1) .
1.1 The vulnerability exists due to insufficient filtration of user-supplied data in "subject" HTTP POST parameter passed to "/profiles.php" script. A remote attacker can trick a logged-in user to open a specially crafted link and execute arbitrary HTML and script code in browser in context of the vulnerable website.
