~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Overview:

With the Page2Flip Web application, it is possible to create e-papers in
PDF format that can be flicked through digitally. Such e-papers can be
used for magazines, catalogues, flyers, etc. (see [1]).

The Page2Flip application is vulnerable to Persistent Cross-Site
Scripting so that administrative users can attack other administrative
users or users with fewer privileges.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Vulnerability Details:

The SySS GmbH identified a persistent cross-site scripting vulnerability
in the Page2Flip Premium App. 

At least the parameters "first name" and "last name" are not sanitized
sufficiently resulting in a persistent cross-site scripting
vulnerability. 

This reflected cross-site scripting vulnerability can be exploited in
the context of an authenticated user by storing script code in one of
these fields.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Proof of Concept (PoC):

The following HTTP POST request using the JavaScript code 
"<script>alert(1)</script>" as the value for the parameter "nachname"
demonstrates the persistent cross-site scripting vulnerability by
showing a JavaScript alert box as soon as this user has logged on:

POST /settings/users HTTP/1.1
