4) Description of Vulnerabilities

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in OpenX, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting, cross-site request forgery, and file inclusion attacks and by malicious users to conduct script insertion and SQL injection attacks.

  1. Input passed to the "clientid" parameter in "www/admin/banneracl. php", "www/admin/banner-edit.php", "www/admin/campaign-zone.php", "www/admin/advertiser-campaigns.php", "www/admin/campaignbanners. php", and "www/admin/banner-activate.php" is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in the context of an affected site.
  2. Input passed to the "orderdirection" and "listorder" parameters in "www/admin/userlog-index.php" and "www/admin/stats.php" is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in the context of an affected site.
  3. Input passed to the "origPublisherId" parameter in "www/admin/userlog-index.php" is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in the context of an affected site.
  4. Input passed to "setPerPage", "day", "period_end", "period_start", and "statsBreakdown" parameters in "www/admin/stats.php" is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in the context of an affected site.
  5. Input passed to the "campaignid" parameter in "www/admin/banneracl. php", "www/admin/banner-edit.php", "www/admin/banner-acl.php", "www/admin/campaign-zone.php", and "www/admin/campaign-banners.php" is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in the context of an affected site.
  6. Input passed to the "bannerid" parameter in "www/admin/banneracl. php" is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in the context of an affected site.
  7. Input passed to the "affiliateid" parameter in "www/admin/zoneprobability. php", "www/admin/zone-invocation.php", "www/admin/affiliate-zones.php", and "www/admin/zone-include.php" is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in the context of an affected site.
  8. Input passed to the "zoneid" parameter in "www/admin/zoneprobability. php", "www/admin/zone-invocation.php", and "www/admin/zone-include.php" is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in the context of an affected site.
  9. Input passed to the "userid" parameter in "www/admin/adminuser. php" is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in the context of an affected site.
  10. Input passed to the "thirdpartytrack" parameter in "www/admin/admin-generate.php" is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in the context of an affected site.
  11. Input passed to the "agencyid" parameter in "www/admin/agencyedit. php" is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in the context of an affected site.
  12. Input passed to the "codetype" parameter in "www/admin/affiliatepreview. php" is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in the context of an affected site.
  13. The application allows users to perform certain actions via HTTP requests without performing any validity checks to verify the requests. This can be exploited to e.g. perform script insertion attacks via the "timezone" parameter in www/admin/account- -timezone.php by tricking the user into visiting a malicious web site.
  14. Input passed to the "name" and "description" parameters in "www/admin/channel-edit.php" is not properly sanitised before being used. This can be exploited to insert arbitrary HTML and script code, which is executed in a user's browser session in the context of an affected site when the malicious entry is viewed.
  15. Input passed to the "campaignid" parameter in "www/admin/banneracl. php", "www/admin/campaign-edit.php", and "www/admin/banneredit. php" is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
  16. Input passed to the "bannerid" parameter in "www/admin/banneracl. php" is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
  17. Input passed to the "listorder" parameter in "www/admin/userlogindex. php" is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
  18. Input passed to the "affiliateid" parameter in "www/admin/zoneprobability. php", "www/admin/channel-edit.php", "www/admin/zoneinvocation. php", and "www/admin/zone-include.php" is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
  19. Input passed to the "clientid" parameter in "www/admin/campaignbanners. php" is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
  20. Input passed to the "zoneid" parameter in "www/admin/zonedelete. php" and "www/admin/zone-include.php" is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
  21. Input passed to the "channelid" parameter in "www/admin/channelacl. php" is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
  22. Input passed to the "MAX_type" parameter in "www/delivery/fc.php" and to the "lang" parameter in "www/admin/numberFormat.js.php" is not properly verified before being used to include files. This can be exploited to include arbitrary files from local resources via directory traversal attacks.
