Patch Available for "IIS Cross-Site Scripting" Vulnerabilities

Originally posted: August 25, 2000

Summary
=======
Microsoft has released a patch that eliminates security
vulnerabilities in Microsoft(r) Internet Information Server. The
vulnerabilities could allow a malicious web site operator to misuse
another web site as a means of attacking users.

Frequently asked questions regarding this vulnerability and
the patch can be found at
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/fq00-060.asp

Issue
=====
On February 20, 2000, Microsoft and CERT (www.cert.org) published
information on a newly-identified security vulnerability affected all
web server products. This vulnerability, known as Cross-Site
Scripting (CSS), results when web applications don't properly
validate inputs before using them in dynamic web pages. If a
malicious web site operator were able to lure a user to his site, and
had identified a third-party web site that was vulnerable to CSS, he
could potentially use the vulnerability to "inject" script into a web
page created by the other web site, which would then be delivered to
the user. The net effect would be to cause the malicious user's
script to run on the user's machine using the trust afforded the
other site.

The vulnerability can affect any software that runs on a web server,
accepts user input, and blindly uses it to generate web pages.
Microsoft recommended that all vendors check their products to see if
any are affected by the vulnerability, and initiated a check of its
own products as well. Several features in IIS were found to be
affected - some were found by Microsoft internal teams, and others
were identified by customers - and this patch eliminates all of them.
