Multiple XSS bugs in manila.
To: manila-bugs () userland com

Michael Bauer <mihi () lo-res org>, Aaron Kaplan <aaron () lo-res org>

This bugs will be reported to you and released to the public 10 days after
submission to userland.com, as we strongly believe in full disclosure.

Versions tested :
   <meta name="generator" content="UserLand Frontier 9.0.1">


Manila is vulnerable to several XSS injections which can be abused
to steal a cookie from a logged in user. This means taking over his session
doing stuff in his name.


        In the module "msgReader"
        proof of concept:
http://manila.userland.com/discuss/msgReader$1?mode=%22%3E% 3Cscript%3Eale

        in the module "sendMail":
        proof of concept:
http://profiles.userland.com/sendMail?usernum=2500&referer=% 22%3E%3Cscrip

        in the module "editInBrowser"
it is possible to use <a> and other html tags to put javascript
        instructions into the webpage examples:
        <a href=javascript:alert('xss!')>click here</a>
        <a href=# onmouseover="alert('xss!')">click here</a>
        <a href=# onmouseout="alert('xss!')">click here</a>

demo can be seen on http://mana.manila.at/discuss/msgReader $15?mode=day
        as we got an account there.

htmlescape all user input! if you want to accept html as input
write your own html parser for a limited html subset.
