Stefan Friedli found several web-based vulnerabilities that were
identified in ePortfolio version 1.0 Java and may affect earlier
versions as well.
this is not generally a bad thing, it causes massive problems when it
comes to data validation. As we recognized, the entire validation of
using a Proxy BURPproxy or WebScarab to modify original requests sent
(and validated) by the browser.
We assume this vulnerability to exist in nearly every form offered by
the application. Due to the limited functionality of the account used
for testing, we're not able to definitely confirm or deny this fact.
PoC Code is not being published.
As there is a serious lack of server-side measured to protect the
application from malicious input, an attacker may realize nearly every
attack that relies on lacking input-validation which includes Cross Site
Scripting and Cross-Site Request Forgery (Session Riding) .
Detection of web based attacks requires a specialized web proxy and/or
intrusion detection system. Patterns for detection of basic attacks are
available and easy to implement, though they may possibly fail on more
Server-side input validation should be provied by the application vendor
as soon as possible.
