-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
"Reflected Cross-Site Scripting (XSS)" (CWE-79) vulnerability in "infoware MapSuite"
This vulnerability affects versions of MapSuite MapAPI prior to 1.0.36 and 1.1.49
MapSuite MapAPI 1.0.36 and 1.1.49
Both patches are available since 2014-03-26.
This issue was reported to the vendor by Christian Schneider (@cschneider4711)
following a responsible disclosure process.
No authentication required
Using a specially crafted URL to access the MapAPI it is possible to execute Reflected
Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) attacks. This enables attackers to impersonate victim users
(in context of the origin exposing the MapAPI) when logged-in victims are accessing
attacker supplied links.
Proof of concept
Due to the responsible disclosure process chosen and to not harm unpatched systems,
no concrete exploit code will be presented in this advisory.
MapSuite MapAPI 1.0.x users should upgrade to 1.0.36 or later as soon as possible.
MapSuite MapAPI 1.1.x users should upgrade to 1.1.49 or later as soon as possible.
