Cross-Site Scripting Vulnerability in Macromedia Sitespring

Reported July 17, 2002, by Peter Gründl.

VERSION AFFECTED

 

  • Macromedia Sitespring 2.0 for Windows 2000 Server

 

DESCRIPTION

A cross-site scripting vulnerability exists in the default error page of Macromedia’s Sitespring. Because the default HTTP 500 error script doesn't check the contents of the error ticket parameter before outputting it, an attacker can inject JavaScript into the URL.

 

VENDOR RESPONSE

 

The vendor, Macromedia, hasn't released a fix for this vulnerability, but affected users can work around the problem by replacing the default HTTP 500 error page with a custom page.
