                                            `PR07-41: XSS on Juniper Networks Secure Access 2000  
  
Vulnerability found: 6th December 2007  
  
Vendor informed: 12th December 2007  
  
Severity: Medium-high  
  
  
Description:  
  
Juniper Networks Secure Access 2000 is vulnerable to a vanilla XSS.  
  
Vulnerable server-side script: '/dana-na/auth/rdremediate.cgi'  
  
Unfiltered parameter: 'delivery_mode'  
  
  
Successfully tested on: Juniper Networks Secure Access 2000 (SA-2000)   
5.5R1 (build 11711)  
  
  
Proof of concept:  
  
https://target-domain.foo/dana-na/auth/rdremediate.cgi?delivery_mode=</APPLET><SCRIPT>alert('Can%20Cross%20Site%20Attack')</SCRIPT>&action=tryaga   
  
in&signinId=url_default  
  
  
Consequences:  
  
An attacker may be able to cause execution of malicious scripting code   
in the browser of a victim user who clicks on a link to a Juniper   
Networks Secure Access site. Such code would run within the security   
context of the target domain.  
  
This type of attack can result in non-persistent defacement of the   
target site, or the redirection of confidential information (i.e.: admin   
session IDs) to unauthorised third parties.  
  
Fix:  
  
Juniper Networks was aware of this issue which they addressed on version   
5.5R3. However, we decided to release this advisory due to lack of   
information regarding this vulnerability in the public domain.
