aushack.com - Vulnerability Advisory
-----------------------------------------------
Release Date:
 22-Sep-2006

Software:
 Squiz - My Source and My Source Matrix
 http://www.squiz.net.au

"MySource Matrix is the newest version of the popular MySource CMS,
 purpose built for enterprise level installations. It boasts all the
 features of high-end systems such as highly configurable workflow,
 a powerful integrated search engine, intuitive front-end editing, true
 rollback and much more."

Versions affected:
 MySource Matrix 3.8 and below, MySource 2.x.

Vulnerability discovered:

MySource Matrix may be used as an unauthorised HTTP proxy (and XSS).

Vulnerability impact:

Low - An anonymous user may use the MySource based website as a proxy.
       Additionally, proxied bandwidth may be at great financial expense.
       Remote content may contain JavaScript which is client executed.

Vulnerability information

A function of the software 'sq_remote_page_url' allows inclusion of remote
 content in the body of the website.

Example: (wrapped)
  http://www.mysource-example.com.au/$page?sq_remote_page_action=
  fetch_url&sq_remote_page_url=http://www.google.com.au

... where '$page' is a valid CMS reference, e.g. 'about_us'.

This will return the Google website, encapsulated in the header
  and footer HTML of the www.mysource-example.com.au site.

The remote page may contain JavaScript for XSS purposes, e.g. cookies.

Remote PHP inclusion does not appear to be possible (returns % hex value).

One could write a script to enable a world wide anonymous proxy array.

Solution:
 The vendor does not consider this a vulnerability. Newer versions of the
 software include a function 'sq_content_src' to hide the URL (Base64),
 in addition to use of a string whitelist to permit inclusion, for example:

if whitelist = http://www.trust-content.com/index?id=*, where * = <wildcard>
  	  ok  = http://www.trust-content.com/index?id=1234
 	  bad = http://www.trust-content.com/index?ref=1234

Note that whilst the URL is Base64 encoded, this does not necessarily mean
 that whitelists are used. Future releases may be proxied via:

http://www.mysource-example.com.au/$page?
 sq_content_src=aHR0cDovL3d3dy5nb29nbGUuY29tLmF1
