Patch available for RoboHelp Server Cross-Site Scripting issue

Release date: July 8, 2008

Vulnerability identifier: APSB08-16

CVE number: CVE-2008-2991

Platform: Windows

Affected software versions:

    * RoboHelp Server 6
    * RoboHelp Server 7

Summary

A specially crafted URL could be used to create a cross-site scripting attack 
on RoboHelp Server 6 and RoboHelp Server 7 installations.

Solution

Adobe strongly recommends users update their RoboHelp Server 6 and Robohelp 
Server 7 installations using the instructions below.

   1. Download the update file.
   2. Replace files Report_API.asp, Report_Template.asp and SQL_Lib.asp with 
      their respective updated files at following location: 
      <RoboHelpServer Installation Directory>\Reports
      (e.g. D:\Program Files\Adobe\RoboHelp Server 7\Reports)
   3. Restart RoboHelp Server.

Severity rating

Adobe categorizes this as an important issue and recommends affected users 
patch their installations.

Details

A specially crafted URL could be used to create a cross-site scripting attack 
against RoboHelp Server 6 and RoboHelp Server 7. An attacker would need to 
have access to the RoboHelp Help Errors log, or convince someone with access 
to the RoboHelp Help Errors log to click on a malicious URL, in order to 
execute the attack. RoboHelp 6 and RoboHelp 7 (non-Server releases) are not 
vulnerable to this issue.

Adobe would like to thank the Vulnerability Research Team of Assurent Secure 
Technologies, a TELUS company, and Greg Patton of PropertyInfo Corporation 
for reporting this vulnerability and for working with us to help protect our
