VP-ASP Shopping Cart "type" Cross-Site Scripting Vulnerability

Friday, 18 May 2007

John Martinelli has reported a vulnerability in VP-ASP Shopping Cart, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

Input passed to the "type" parameter in shopcontent.asp is not properly sanitised before being returned to a 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 6.50. Other versions may also be affected.

The vendor reportedly issued a patch last May 16, 2007.
