The Weather Channel at Least 76.3% Links Vulnerable to XSS Attacks

 

 

Domain Description:
http://www.weather.com/

 

“The Weather Channel is an American basic cable and satellite television channel which broadcasts weather forecasts and weather-related news and analyses, along with documentaries and entertainment programming related to weather. Launched on May 2, 1982, the channel broadcasts weather forecasts and weather-related news and analysis, along with documentaries and entertainment programming related to weather.”

 

“As of February 2015, The Weather Channel was received by approximately 97.3 million American households that subscribe to a pay television service (83.6% of U.S. households with at least one television set), which gave it the highest national distribution of any U.S. cable channel. However, it was subsequently dropped by Verizon FiOS (losing its approximately 5.5 millions subscribers), giving the title of most distributed network to HLN. Actual viewership of the channel averaged 210,000 during 2013 and has been declining for several years. Content from The Weather Channel is available for purchase from the NBCUniversal Archives.” (Wikipedia)

 

 

 

 

Vulnerability description:


The Weather Channel has a cyber security problem. Hacker can exploit it by XSS bugs.

 

Almost all links under the domain weather.com are vulnerable to XSS attacks. Attackers just need to add script at the end of The Weather Channel’s URLs. Then the scripts will be executed.

 

10 thousands of Links were tested based a self-written tool. During the tests, 76.3% of links belong to weather.com were vulnerable to XSS attacks.

 

The reason of this vulnerability is that Weather Channel uses URLs to construct its HTML tags without filtering malicious script codes.

 

The vulnerability can be attacked without user login. Tests were performed on Firefox (34.0) in Ubuntu (14.04) and IE (9.0.15) in Windows 8.

The Weather Channel has patched this Vulnerability in late November, 2014 (last Week). “The Full Disclosure mailing list is a public forum for detailed discussion of vulnerabilities and exploitation techniques, as well as tools, papers, news, and events of interest to the community. FD differs from other security lists in its open nature and support for researchers’ right to decide how to disclose their own discovered bugs. The full disclosure movement has been credited with forcing vendors to better secure their products and to publicly acknowledge and fix flaws rather than hide them. Vendor legal intimidation and censorship attempts are not tolerated here!” A great many of the fllowing web securities have been published here, Buffer overflow, HTTP Response Splitting (CRLF), CMD Injection, SQL injection, Phishing, Cross-site scripting, CSRF, Cyber-attack, Unvalidated Redirects and Forwards, Information Leakage, Denial of Service, File Inclusion, Weak Encryption, Privilege Escalation, Directory Traversal, HTML Injection, Spam. This bug was published at The Full Disclosure in November, 2014.

(2) Vulnerability description:

The web application indiatimes.com online website has a security problem. Hacker can exploit it by XSS bugs.

 

The code flaw occurs at Indiatimes’s URL links. Indiatimes only filter part of the filenames in its website. All URLs under Indiatimes’s “photogallery” and “top-llists” topics are affected.

Indiatimes uses part of the links under “photogallery” and “top-llists” topics to construct its website content without any checking of those links at all. This mistake is very popular in nowaday websites. Developer is not security expert.

The vulnerability can be attacked without user login. Tests were performed on Mozilla Firefox (26.0) in Ubuntu (12.04) and Microsoft IE (9.0.15) in Windows 7.

What is XSS?

“Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) attacks are a type of injection, in which malicious scripts are injected into otherwise benign and trusted web sites. XSS attacks occur when an attacker uses a web application to send malicious code, generally in the form of a browser side script, to a different end user. Flaws that allow these attacks to succeed are quite widespread and occur anywhere a web application uses input from a user within the output it generates without validating or encoding it.” (OWASP)

 

 

 

(3) Vulnerability Disclosure:

The vulnerabilities were reported to Indiatimes in early September, 2014. However they are still unpatched.

(2) Vulnerability Details:

NetCat web application has a computer security bug problem. It can be exploited by HTML Injection attacks. Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) injection, also sometimes referred to as virtual defacement, is an attack on a user made possible by an injection vulnerability in a web application. When an application does not properly handle user supplied data, an attacker can supply valid HTML, typically via a parameter value, and inject their own content into the page. This attack is typically used in conjunction with some form of social engineering, as the attack is exploiting a code-based vulnerability and a user’s trust.

Several NetCat products 0-day vulnerabilities have been found by some other bug hunter researchers before. NetCat has patched some of them. Web Security Watch is an aggregator of security reports coming from various sources. It aims to provide a single point of tracking for all publicly disclosed security issues that matter. “Its unique tagging system enables you to see a relevant set of tags associated with each security alert for a quick overview of the affected products. What’s more, you can now subscribe to an RSS feed containing the specific tags that you are interested in – you will then only receive alerts related to those tags.” It has published suggestions, advisories, solutions details related to cyber security vulnerabilities.

 

(2.1) The programming code flaw occurs at “/catalog/search.php?” page with “&q” parameter.

(2) Vulnerability Details:

 

6kbbs web application has a computer security problem. It can be exploited by weak encryption attacks. The software stores or transmits sensitive data using an encryption scheme that is theoretically sound, but is not strong enough for the level of protection required. A weak encryption scheme can be subjected to brute force attacks that have a reasonable chance of succeeding using current attack methods and resources.

 

Several 6kbbs products 0-day web cyber bugs have been found by some other bug hunter researchers before. 6kbbs has patched some of them. “The Full Disclosure mailing list is a public forum for detailed discussion of vulnerabilities and exploitation techniques, as well as tools, papers, news, and events of interest to the community. FD differs from other security lists in its open nature and support for researchers’ right to decide how to disclose their own discovered bugs. The full disclosure movement has been credited with forcing vendors to better secure their products and to publicly acknowledge and fix flaws rather than hide them. Vendor legal intimidation and censorship attempts are not tolerated here!” A great many of the web securities have been published here.

 

Source Code:

<?php

if(empty($row)){

$extrow=$db->row_select_one(“users”,”username='{$username}'”);

if(!empty($extrow) && !empty($extrow[‘salt’])){

if(md5(md5($userpass).$extrow[‘salt’])==$extrow[‘userpass’]){

$row=$extrow;

$new_row[“userpass”]=$userpass_encrypt;

$new_row[“salt”]=””;

$db->row_update(“users”,$new_row,”id={$extrow[‘id’]}”);

}

}

}

?>

 

 

Source Code From:
http://code.google.com/p/6kbbs/source/browse/trunk/convert/discuz72/loginext.php?r=16

 

We can see that “userpass” stored in cookie was encrypted using “$userpass” user password directly. And there is no “HttpOnly” attribute at all. Since md5 is used for the encryption, it is easy for hackers to break the encrypted message.

 

“The MD5 message-digest cryptography algorithm is a widely used cryptographic hash function producing a 128-bit (16-byte) hash value, typically expressed in text format as a 32 digit hexadecimal number. Papers about it have been published on Eurocrypt, Asiacrypt and Crypto. Meanwhile, researchers focusing on it spread in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, IEEE and Mathematics. MD5 has been utilized in a wide variety of cryptographic applications, and is also commonly used to verify data integrity. MD5 was designed by Ronald Rivest in 1991 to replace an earlier hash function, MD4. The source code in RFC 1321 contains a “by attribution” RSA license.” (Wikipedia)

(2) Vulnerability Details:

Webshop hun web application has a computer security bug problem. It can be exploited by Directory Traversal – Local File Include (LFI) attacks. A local file inclusion (LFI) flaw is due to the script not properly sanitizing user input, specifically path traversal style attacks (e.g. ‘../../’) supplied to the parameters. With a specially crafted request, a remote attacker can include arbitrary files from the targeted host or from a remote host . This may allow disclosing file contents or executing files like PHP scripts. Such attacks are limited due to the script only calling files already on the target host.

Several similar products vulnerabilities have been found by some other bug hunter researchers before. Webshop hun has patched some of them.
