PR07-38: XSS on sIFR Vulnerability Found: 12 November 2007 Vendor contacted: 19 November 2007 Vulnerability fixed: The issue remains unfixed. The developer of sIFR was contacted several times but did not respond. Severity: Medium Successfully tested on: sIFR 2.0.2 Description: Sites using sIFR to render fonts/text are vulnerable to a vanilla XSS within the "txt" parameter processed by the actionscript in the '<fontname>.swf' flash file. Note: the victim user does NOT need to be authenticated for this vulnerability to be exploitable. HTML injection PoC: Provided the victim is tricked to load the following URL, he/she would be redirected to a third-party site. https://target.tld/<fontname>.swf?txt=<a href="http://www.procheckup.com">click me!</a> XSS PoC: http://target.tld/fonts/FuturaLt.swf?txt=%3Ca%20href=%22javascript:alert (document.cookie)%22%3Eclick%20me!%3C/a%3E&textalign=left&offsetTop=-2&t extcolor= Consequences: An attacker may be able to cause execution of malicious scripting code in the browser of a user who clicks on a link to the target website, or visits a malicious website that requests such link. This type of attack can result in non-persistent defacement of the target site, or the redirection of confidential information (i.e.: session IDs) to unauthorised third parties.
