The New York Times(Nytimes.com) Covert Redirect Web Security Bug Based on Google Doubleclick.net

New-York-Times-office

(1) WebSite:

nytimes.com



“The New York Times (NYT) is an American daily newspaper, founded and continuously published in New York City since September 18, 1851, by the New York Times Company. It has won 117 Pulitzer Prizes, more than any other news organization.

The paper’s print version has the largest circulation of any metropolitan newspaper in the United States, and the second-largest circulation overall, behind The Wall Street Journal. It is ranked 39th in the world by circulation. Following industry trends, its weekday circulation has fallen to fewer than one million daily since 1990. Nicknamed for years as “The Gray Lady”, The New York Times is long regarded within the industry as a national “newspaper of record”. It is owned by The New York Times Company. Arthur Ochs Sulzberger, Jr., (whose family (Ochs-Sulzberger) has controlled the paper for five generations, since 1896), is both the paper’s publisher and the company’s chairman. Its international version, formerly the International Herald Tribune, is now called the International New York Times.” (Wikipedia)

(2) Vulnerability Description:

The New York Times web application has a computer cyber security problem. Hacker can exploit it by Covert Redirect attacks.



The vulnerabilities can be attacked without user login. Tests were performed on Microsoft IE (10.0.9200.16750) of Windows 8, Mozilla Firefox (34.0) & Google Chromium 39.0.2171.65-0 ubuntu0.14.04.1.1064 (64-bit) of Ubuntu (14.04),Apple Safari 6.1.6 of Mac OS X Lion 10.7.

The programming code flaw occurs at “adx_click.html?” page with “&goto” parameter, i.e.

http://www.nytimes.com/adx/bin/adx_click.html?type=goto&opzn&page=www.nytimes.com/pages/nyregion/index.html&pos=SFMiddle&sn2=8dfce1f6/9926f9b3&sn1=bbba504f/c0de9221&camp=CouplesResorts_1918341&ad=NYRegionSF_Feb_300x250-B5732328.10663001&goto=http%3A%2F%2Fad%2Edoubleclick%2Enet%2Fddm%2Fclk%2F279541164%3B106630011%3Bs%3Fhttp%3A%2F%2Ffacebook%2Ecom%2Fall%2Dinclusive%2Ephp%3Futm%5Fsource%3Dnyt%26utm%5Fmedium%3Ddisplay%26utm%5Fcontent%3Dclicktracker%26utm%5Fcampaign%3D300x250%5FExpectMore%5FNYT%5FNYRegion

(2.1) When a user is redirected from Nytimes to another site, Nytimes will check parameters “&sn1″ and “&sn2″. If the redirected URL’s domain is OK, Nytimes will allow the reidrection.

However, if the URLs in a redirected domain have open URL redirection vulnerabilities themselves, a user could be redirected from Nytimes to a vulnerable URL in that domain first and later be redirected from this vulnerable site to a malicious site. This is as if being redirected from Nytimes directly.

One of the vulnerable domain is,
doubleclick.net (Google’s Ad website)

(2.2) Use one of webpages for the following tests. The webpage address is “http://xingti.tumblr.com”. We can suppose that this webpage is malicious.

Vulnerable URL:

(3) What is Covert Redirect?

Covert Redirect is a class of security bugs disclosed in May 2014. It is an application that takes a parameter and redirects a user to the parameter value without sufficient validation. This often makes use of Open Redirect and XSS vulnerabilities in third-party applications.

Covert Redirect is also related to single sign-on. It is known by its influence on OAuth and OpenID. Hacker may use it to steal users’ sensitive information. Almost all OAuth 2.0 and OpenID providers worldwide are affected. Covert Redirect was found and dubbed by a Mathematics PhD student Wang Jing from School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.

After Covert Redirect was published, it is kept in some common databases such as SCIP, OSVDB, Bugtraq, and X-Force. Its scipID is 13185, while OSVDB reference number is 106567. Bugtraq ID: 67196. X-Force reference number is 93031.

NetCat web application has a computer security bug problem. It can be exploited by HTTP Response Splitting (CRLF) attacks. This could allow a remote attacker to insert arbitrary HTTP headers, which are included in a response sent to the server. If an application does not properly filter such a request, it could be used to inject additional headers that manipulate cookies, authentication status, or more.

Several other similar products 0-day vulnerabilities have been found by some other bug hunter researchers before. NetCat has patched some of them. CXSECurity is a huge collection of information on data communications safety. Its main objective is to inform about errors in various applications. It also publishes suggestions, advisories, solutions details related to CRLF vulnerabilities and cyber intelligence recommendations.

(2.1) The first code flaw occurs at “/post.php” page with “redirect_url” parameter by adding “%0d%0a%20”.

(2.2) The second code flaw occurs at “redirect.php?” page with “url” parameter by adding “%0d%0a%20”.

The new interface invites users to quickly post photos and video, expanding content on vBulletin sites. This media is then leveraged by being better integrated with the rest of a site’s content. User profiles provide an engaging aggregation of all media posted by them.
Category-leading mobile optimization

The integrated mobile-optimized version ensures smartphone visitors will stay longer and return.
Robust architecture

Improved architecture provides better performance and easier customization

Built-in SEO helps maximize search traffic

Easy-to-use upgrader tool available for vBulletin 3 and 4 sites, plus importer for sites on other forum software”

 

 

(2) Vulnerability Details:

vBulletin web application has a computer security bug problem. It can be exploited by XSS attacks. This may allow a remote attacker to create a specially crafted request that would execute arbitrary script code in a user’s browser session within the trust relationship between their browser and the server.

Several other similar products 0-day vulnerabilities have been found by some other bug hunter researchers before. vBulletion has patched some of them. Gmane (pronounced “mane”) is an e-mail to news gateway. It allows users to access electronic mailing lists as if they were Usenet newsgroups, and also through a variety of web interfaces. Gmane is an archive; it never expires messages (unless explicitly requested by users). Gmane also supports importing list postings made prior to a list’s inclusion on the service. It has published suggestions, advisories, solutions related to important vulnerabilities.

(2.1) The programming code flaw occurs at “forum/help” page. Add “hash symbol” first. Then add script at the end of it.

Suggestion Details:

(1) Vendor & Product Description:



Vendor:

NYU



Product & Vulnerable Versions:

OpenSSO Integration

2.1



Vendor URL & Download:

OpenSSO Integration can be obtrained from here,

 

Product Description:

“NYU has integrated PDS with Sun’s OpenSSO Identity Management application. The PDS/OpenSSO integration uses PDS as the NYU Libraries’ single sign-on system and leverages NYU’s OpenSSO system to provide seamless interaction between library applications and university services. The integration merges patron information from OpenSSO (e.g. name, email, e-resources access) with patron information from Aleph (e.g. borrower status and type) to ensure access to the multitude of library services.”

“The NYU Libraries operate in a consortial environment in which not all users are in OpenSSO and not all OpenSSO users are in Aleph. PDS is hosted in an active/passive capacity on our Primo front-end servers. Due to the nature of PDS and Aleph, patrons are required to have an Aleph account in order to login to the library’s SSO environment. The exception to this rule is EZProxy.”
