SiteSearch Indexer 3.5 XSS vuln.

###############################################
Vuln. discovered by : r0t
Date: 31 march 2006
vendor:www.marcreed.com/projects/search_indexer/tutorial/
affected versions: 3.5 and prior
###############################################

Vuln. description

SiteSearch Indexer contains a flaw that allows a remote cross site scripting attack. This flaw exists because input passed to "searchField" paremeter in "searchresults.asp" isn't properly sanitised before being returned to the user.
This could allow a user to create a specially crafted URL that would execute arbitrary code in a user's browser within the trust relationship between the browser and the server, leading to a loss of integrity.


example:

/search/searchresults.asp?searchField=[XSS]

###############################################
Solution:
Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.

This accusation is false. This does not apply to SiteSearch Indexer because the form submission does not create any permanent pages or urls that might be left on a website for another user to encounter. If a user conducts a search on your website, the list of urls generated is not written or stored anywhere - it is temporary and exists only in memory. A user will not encounter results from another users search. Nothing gets written to a database, text file, or otherwise that may be retrieved later.
