d package. phpBB has a user-friendly interface, simple and straightforward administration

- --- 1. XSS ---
If in phpbb is Allowed HTML tags "ON" like b,i,u,pre and have you in profile "Always al
low HTML: YES" or are you Guest

This issue is in phpBB 2.0.19 .
Some Details :
Old exploit for x <= 2.0.18 was (http://securityreason.com/achievement_securityalert/29) :

<B C=">" onmouseover="alert('SecurityReason.Com')" X="<B "> H E L O </B>

New exploit for x <= 2.0.19 is :
<B C='>' onmouseover='alert("SecurityReason.Com")' X='<B '> SecurityReason.Com </B

The exploits are simillar but not the same ! As you can notice the " is replaced to '
In new version phpBB they only filter " but not '

that you can use this tags:

<B C='>' onmouseover='alert("SecurityReason.Com")' X='<B '> SecurityReason.Com </B


<B C='>' onmouseover='alert(document.location="http://SecurityReason.Com")' X='<B
'> SecurityReason.Com </B>

SecurityReason Note :

According to http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=352966
[Sec] fixed XSS issue (only valid for Internet Explorer) within the url bbcode
[Sec] fixed XSS issue (only valid for Internet Explorer) if html tags are allowed and enab
SecurityReason tested this issue before public advisory :
and the XSS is working on :
- -> Mozilla
- -> Internet Explorer ( so !not! only valid Internet Explorer)
- -> Opera
- -> Firefox
- -> Links
As proof SecurityReason show examples of working XSS on screens :
http://securityreason.com/downloads/mozilla.png -> Mozilla
http://securityreason.com/downloads/opera.png -> Opera
http://securityreason.com/downloads/firefox.png -> Firefox
http://securityreason.com/downloads/links.png -> Links

We have reported this bug to phpbb bugtraq and:

phpBB Team respone :
- --------------------
we do not intended to fix the previous issue in 2.0.19 (it was just preventing it by the q
uote change, which was good - but we intended this change
because of other forseeable issues) - and i do not intend to fix this one. HTML is and was
always "bad" and has been stated as being
able to be entered "as is". In olympus we will therefore remove html support completely
- --------------------

So Solusion is:

phpBB Team respone :
- -------------------
I already said we will fix it in CVS but do not see the need to release a new version imme
- -------------------

So there is no fix for this .
Only way to protect is :

Allow HTML = Off
