Technical Details & Description:
A permission level bypass web vulnerability has been identified in the microsoft sharePoint 2013 online service
web-application & maybe prior versions. The security vulnerability allows attackers to open or view restricted
items in the site or library. An authenticated user can bypass `Limited Access` permissions to browse a page or
library to access a specific content item that was restricted.

Proof of Concept (PoC):
POC 1:
1. Search for specific words inside web & mobile sharepoint search box: `password` `pass` `user` `domainuser` `name | lastname` ...

[~] web search: http://site/BSearch/results.aspx
[~] mobie search: http://site/_layouts/mobile/MobileResults.aspx

example : http://site/BSearch/results.aspx?k=password
example : http://site/BSearch/results.aspx?k="NSA1377"
example : http://site/_layouts/mobile/MobileResults.aspx?k=pass
example : http://site/_layouts/mobile/MobileResults.aspx?k=BOB

2. The page shown some of sharepoint's search results like restricted specific item, site, library urls etc
3. so click at the urls to access|viwe|read site page and other restricted library and items

POC 2:
After capturing packets between our system and the sharepoint site (use fiddler or burpsiute, wireshark ...)
We have access to items, list, pages, sites urls like as follows:


Access to restricted items & lists by make /LIST#/ urls


Security Risk:
The security risk of the bypass vulnerability in the microsoft sharepoint 2013 application is estimated as medium (CVSS 4.8).
