Interspire ActiveKB NX "page" Cross-Site Scripting

Friday, 12 October 2007

Vendor: Interspire Pty. Ltd.


durito has reported a vulnerability in ActiveKB NX, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

Input passed to the "page" parameter in categories/[CAT]/index.php (where "[CAT]" is the name of an existing category) is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.

The vulnerability is reported in version 2.6. Other versions may also be affected.

Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
