Description

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in Moodle, a course management system. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems :

  • CVE-2010-1613 Moodle does not enable the 'Regenerate session id during login' setting by default, which makes it easier for remote attackers to conduct session fixation attacks.

  • CVE-2010-1614 Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via vectors related to (1) the Login-As feature or (2) when the global search feature is enabled, unspecified global search forms in the Global Search Engine.

  • CVE-2010-1615 Multiple SQL injection vulnerabilities allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary SQL commands via vectors related to (1) the add_to_log function in mod/wiki/view.php in the wiki module, or (2) 'data validation in some forms elements' related to lib/form/selectgroups.php.

  • CVE-2010-1616 Moodle can create new roles when restoring a course, which allows teachers to create new accounts even if they do not have the moodle/user:create capability.

  • CVE-2010-1617 user/view.php does not properly check a role, which allows remote authenticated users to obtain the full names of other users via the course profile page.

  • CVE-2010-1618 A Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in the phpCAS client library allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via a crafted URL, which is not properly handled in an error message.

  • CVE-2010-1619 A Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in the fix_non_standard_entities function in the KSES HTML text cleaning library (weblib.php) allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via crafted HTML entities.

  • CVE-2010-2228 A Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in the MNET access-control interface allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via vectors involving extended characters in a username.

  • CVE-2010-2229 Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities in blog/index.php allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via unspecified parameters.

  • CVE-2010-2230 The KSES text cleaning filter in lib/weblib.php does not properly handle vbscript URIs, which allows remote authenticated users to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks via HTML input.

  • CVE-2010-2231 A Cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerability in report/overview/report.php in the quiz module allows remote attackers to hijack the authentication of arbitrary users for requests that delete quiz attempts via the attemptid parameter.
