In February I've wrote about Cross-Site Scripting vulnerabilities in
ZeroClipboard and multiple web applications. This is additional information
on this topic.
XSS vulnerabilities in ZeroClipboard
XSS vulnerabilities in YAML, Multiproject for Trac, UserCollections for
Piwigo, TAO and TableTools for DataTables for jQuery
XSS vulnerabilities in em-shorty, RepRapCalculator, Fulcrum, Django and aCMS

During my conversation with old ZeroClipboard developer (Joseph Huckaby) and
new developers (Jon Rohan and James Greene) last month, I've recommended
them to prevent downloading of ZeroClipboard's files (swf and sources) from
repository at Google code. To prevent spreading of vulnerable versions of
software. After my second letter at 19th of February, Joseph agreed with me
on this and gave full control for new developers to make necessary changes
at http://code.google.com/p/zeroclipboard/. About added warnings and
disallowing of downloads Joseph informed me and later James confirm it too.
But it was not sufficient enough, since I found that it was possible to
download files directly from repository (and there are many web sites which
are referencing on these files). So I've suggested Jon and James to
completely prevent downloading of all vulnerable files from old repository.
After my letters from 3rd, 16th and 24th of March, they at last did it and
made complete closure of old repository.
XSS vulnerabilities in zClip and other web applications.
In addition to all those web applications, which I've wrote earlier and
hundreds of webapps on which I've referenced via google dorks, there are
tens or hundreds additional vulnerable web applications with ZeroClipboard.
These are such webapps, which have no swf of ZeroClipboard in their bundles,
but referencing on it at their sites or in documentation. I have found many
webapps with such approach (for different flash-files, like all those flash
video players, about vulnerabilities in which I wrote) for last years and
wrote about such case. E.g. in 2010 I've wrote about Blogumus - a WP-Cumulus
fork for Blogger, where there was swf-file at the site, from which users can
download last version or embed it from that site (like from CDN).
There are such web developers, like developers of zClip and many other web
applications, which are not bundling vulnerable swf of ZeroClipboard, but
they referencing to it in old repository and asking all users to manually
download last version of swf-file from repository (i.e. last vulnerable
version). I've wrote to zClip developers about it at 6th of March, but they
just ignored it. So to protect all future users of zClip and any other
similar software, which are referencing to old repository at Google Code
(with vulnerable versions of ZeroClipboard), and to force a fix to all such
software, it was needed to close old repository completely. And today
ZeroClipboard developers have done it.
For zClip the path will be the next. XSS via id parameter and XSS via
copying payload into clipboard (as described in my first advisory).
All versions of zClip are referencing to vulnerable versions of
ZeroClipboard. So all current users of zClip (including developer of zClip
at their site) are using vulnerable swf-files and have XSS vulnerabilities
at their sites. But since today all future users of zClip are protected.
After I've forced developers of ZeroClipboard, it will prevent spreading of
vulnerable versions of swf-files and will protect future users of all
software (like zClip) from downloading vulnerable versions of ZeroClipboard.
From now all web developers and users need to download ZeroClipboard only
from new repository (https://github.com/jonrohan/ZeroClipboard). Everyone
who is using old versions of ZeroClipboard or software, which are bundled
with old versions of it, needs to update to the last version 1.1.7 from new
