Microsoft .NET request filtering bypass vulnerability
From: research () procheckup com
Date: 25 Oct 2006 22:11:08 -0000
Applications which fail to provide their own filtering on top of the inbuilt .NET request filtering may be vulnerable
to XSS attacks.
Provided that a web application solely relies on .NET request filtering before echoing input back to the web browser,
it is possible to inject scripting code and successfully launch XSS attacks by submitting a specially crafted request.
Specific technical details about the payload required to bypass the .NET request filtering will be provided by
<http://www.procheckup.com> at a later date.
The following combination of client and server environment was successfully tested using XSS cookie theft and redirect
* Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition Build 3790.srv03_sp1_rtm.050324-1447 Service Pack 1
* Microsoft IIS 6.0
* Microsoft ASP .NET Framework Version 2.0.50727.42
* Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_gdr.050301-1519
* Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.0.5450.4 Beta 3
