Announcement-ID: PMASA-2012-4

Date: 2012-08-16

Summary

Multiple XSS in Table operations, Database structure, Trigger and Visualize GIS data pages.

Description

Using a crafted table name, it was possible to produce a XSS : 1) On the Database Structure page, creating a new table with a crafted name 2) On the Database Structure page, using the Empty and Drop links of the crafted table name 3) On the Table Operations page of a crafted table, using the 'Empty the table (TRUNCATE)' and 'Delete the table (DROP)' links 4) On the Triggers page of a database containing tables with a crafted name, when opening the 'Add Trigger' popup 5) When creating a trigger for a table with a crafted name, with an invalid definition. Having crafted data in a database table, it was possible to produce a XSS : 6) When visualizing GIS data, having a crafted label name.

Severity

We consider these vulnerabilities to be non critical.

Mitigation factor

These XSS can only be triggered when a table with a crafted name is already present, or if crafted data is already stored in a database table.
