High-Tech Bridge, a Swiss security firm, published an advisory about the vulnerability on Thursday, along with proof-of-concept code to demonstrate the exploit.
“The vulnerability exists due to failure in the “/_layouts/help.aspx”
script to properly sanitize user-supplied input in “cid0″ variable.
Successful exploitation of this vulnerability could result in a
compromise of the application, theft of cookie-based authentication
credentials, disclosure or modification of sensitive data,” the company said in its advisory.
Microsoft’s Security Response Center said it is working on mitigations, workarounds and a fix for the vulnerability.
