Found by: PrOtOn & digi7al64

Date: May 20th 2006

Critical Level: High

Type: Multiple Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vunerabilities

------------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------

Software:

Blackboard Learning System (Release 6) Blackboard Learning and Community Portal Suite (Release6)-6.2.3.23

------------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------

Explanation: You can inject HTML, VB code and or Javascript into specific tags to steal

cookies, deface the site using frame busters or even redirect to external sites for phishing purposes.

If you have limited access, then a simple post into the Discussion Board using the right

tags with the right code (provided below) will execute the vulnerability(ies).

------------------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------

About:

Blackboards parsing system only checks for the string "javascript", Thus vbscript code can be injected at will into tags as well as any versions of javascript that uses uncommon syntax (ie tabs encoding etc)
