Affected Product(s): ==================== Tryton Foundation Product: Tryton v5.4 - CMS (Web-Application) Vulnerability Disclosure Timeline: ================================== 2020-05-12: Public Disclosure (Vulnerability Laboratory) Discovery Status: ================= Published Exploitation Technique: ======================= Remote Severity Level: =============== Medium Authentication Type: ==================== Restricted authentication (user/moderator) - User privileges User Interaction: ================= Low User Interaction Disclosure Type: ================ Independent Security Research Technical Details & Description: ================================ A persistent input validation web vulnerability has been discovered in the official Tryton v5.4 web-application series. The vulnerability allows remote attackers to inject own malicious script codes with persistent attack vector to compromise browser to web-application requests from the application-side. The persistent vulnerability is located in the `name` parameter of the `User Profile` module. Remote attackers with low privileges are able to inject own malicious persistent script code as name for user accounts. The injected code can be used to attack the frontend or backend of the web-application. The request method to inject is POST and the attack vector is located on the application-side. Injection point is the profile input field with the name value and the execute occurs in the front ui on top right were the avatar is listed or in the admin backend on the res.user;name="Users"&views. Successful exploitation of the vulnerabilities results in session hijacking, persistent phishing attacks, persistent external redirects to malicious source and persistent manipulation of affected application modules. Request Method(s): [+] POST Vulnerable Module(s): [+] User Profile Vulnerable Input(s): [+] Name Vulnerable Parameter(s): [+] name Affected Module(s): [+] /index [+] /model/res.user;name="Users"&views (backend) Proof of Concept (PoC): ======================= The persistent web vulnerability can be exploited by low privileged web application user account with low user interaction. For security demonstration or to reproduce the vulnerability follow the provided information and steps below to continue. Manual steps to reproduce the vulnerability ... 1. Open the application and login to your low privileged user account 2. Move to the profile on top right side (click) 3. Inject test payload to the "Name" input field and save the entry 4. Execution occurs after save on top right and /model/res.user;name="Users"&views of the admin backend 5. Successful reproduce of the persistent cross site vulnerability!
