search.asp Search Feature XSS Vulnerability


Snitz search feature is vulnerable to XSS which

can aide an attacker in stealing cookies, and thus

compromising the account, as described below


Account Compromise Via Cookie Poisoning


In order to steal another users identity, all an attacker 

needs to know is thier encrypted password. This is not

very hard to obtain using the XSS as described above, or

other methods. Once an attacker has this info, all they

have to do is login to thier normal account to get a valid

session id, close the browser, replace thier username and 

encrypted pass with that of the victim, and return to the 

site where they will be recognized as the victim.

password.asp Password Reset Vulnerability


This is the most serious of the vulns, as it requries no

real effort and leaves the entire snitz forum open to attack.

All an attacker has to do is request a forgotten password, save

the password reset page offline,edit the member id to the desired

member id, and submit the form. The members password will then

be reset to that of the attackers choosing.
