(2) Vulnerability Details:
The login page of netmri is vulnerable to a HTTP splitting/CRLF injection.


The POST of the login action contains the following parameters, and the ?contentType? parameter can be modified to be reflected in the response header:


Once we control content-type, we can inject ?carriage return? : %0a and ?line feed? : %0d characters to break the header and introduce our own, effectively ?splitting the response. We can then introduce our own HTML and/or javascript to provoke a HTML injection or cross-site scripting attack.:

%0a%0d%0a<html><h1>Injected HTML</h1><script>alert(?xss?);</script><!--</html>
