TorrentFlux ?action? Script Insertion
TITLE: TorrentFlux ?action? Script Insertion
CRITICAL: Not Critical IMPACT: Cross Site Scripting
WHERE: From remote
SOFTWARE: TorrentFlux 2.x
DESCRIPTION: I have discovered a vulnerability in TorrentFlux, which can be exploited by malicious users to conduct script insertion attacks.
Input passed to the ?action? variable is not properly sanitised before being used. This can be exploited to insert arbitrary HTML and script code, which will be executed in an administrator?s browser session in context of an affected site when the ?Activity Log? is viewed.
The vulnerability has been confirmed in version 2.1. Other versions may also be affected.
SOLUTION: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised. /admin.php Line 336:
$output .= ? ?.htmlentities($action, ENT_QUOTES).?
echo ??.htmlentities($action, ENT_QUOTES).?";
