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

Note: the technical details for this advisory are different from BIDs 8562, 12574 and 20337.

The current version of the advisory can be found on http://www.niscc.gov.uk/niscc/docs/br-20061020-00711.html?lang=en
