Medium

Synopsis

The remote web server is hosting a web application that is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

The remote web server hosts Moodle, an open-source course management system. Versions of Moodle prior to 1.9.11 are potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities exist in the media-filter implementation. Specifically, this affects the 'filter/mediaplugin/filter.php' script. A remote attacker could inject arbitrary HTML or scripts via vectors involving Flash Video (FLV) and YouTube videos. (MSA-11-0011 / CVE-2011-4286)

- A cross-site scripting vulnerability exists in '/tag/tag_autocomplete.php' due to lack of input validation. (MSA-11-0003 / CVE-2011-4278)

- A cross-site request forgery vulnerability flaw exists in RSS feeds contained within an RSS block. (MSA-11-0002 / CVE-2011-4133)

- An information disclosure flaw exists in the IMS enterprise enrollment file when placed in the course files area. Specifically, this affects the 'imsenterprise-enrol.xml' file. (MSA-11-0008 / CVE-2011-4283)

Solution

Upgrade to Moodle version 1.9.11 or later.
