Re: Is OWASP vulnerable ??

Sorry, I didn't mention this in my original reply, if you type the
variable name into google you'll get several hits from the wiki software
they use, appearantly it used to be considered a security hole by the
authors of the software if the wiki was embedded in another frame, so
thats what that check was, however anymore it is disabled by default, and
web app authors being what they are, disabled most likely means they
commented out the declaration.

Hey Andrew :)

Corrected the blog entry, Thanks for your email...

Also added "jf at danglingpointers dot net" ... since he was the first to reply.

I hope this is just a bug, probably something that could cause minimal damage and not a vulnerability.

Cheers :)

Hello all,

There is an undefined function in OWASP website's javascript code
(wikibits.js)
called wgBreakFrames. This can cause potential damage to the site
if used maliciously.

...
if (wgBreakFrames) {
...

First of all, that's a variable, not a function. Creating a function
called "wgBreakFrames" wouldn't execute the function.

Second of all, I'm not really sure how that could be "used
maliciously". If you're able to inject Javascript into the window
context, you can already do whatever you like to the user's browser.
So I'm not quite sure how this is supposed to "cause potential damage
to the site".



Remember there is alwayz someone who knows more than us out there
