Stealing Secrets with CSS : Cross Origin CSS Attacks

In this post I'm going to discuss a web attack that was designated CVE-2015-5826 and CVE-2015-1287 which abuses the way CSS parsing works in some browsers and expands the way we think about HTML injection attacks.

Wednesday, 16 October 2013 Cookie Based XSS suffered from a Cross Site Scripting flaw I found a few days ago. The interesting thing about this flaw is that it was cookie based. The following post details how I found it and what I did to confirm that it was exploitable, it also discusses some interesting points to consider when you find a XSS triggered by Cookie Values.

Injecting javascript via MySQL error based injection

I've written about this in a couple of other articles, but I needed it to be on my new blog because it makes a good attack especially when dealing with MySQL databases, because:

  • MySQL on *nix servers can be configured pretty well, making access to the database very difficult and therefore pwnage can be very difficult!!
  • You have the ability to extend MySQL Error based injection into other attacks that may not be viable on the web application like:
    • non-persistent XSS
    • Defacement of the site
    • HTTP parameter pollution
    • DDos (more on this in another post!!) ---using this web application to make requests to other servers at the expense of the person visiting the page
