Police Crime Record Management System 1.0 Cross-Site Scripting

Application Details

Police Crime Record Management System was developed to store all types of police crime records. The web based application is capable of creating, updating, reading, and deleting crime records, accessed by Admin, CID, and NCO.


Police Crime Management System is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input by Add Staff.


A remote authenticated attacker could exploit this vulnerability using the 'firstname' or 'othernames' field to inject malicious script into a Web page which would be executed in a victim's Web browser within the security context of the hosting Web site, once the page is viewed. An attacker could use this vulnerability to steal the victim's cookie-based authentication credentials.

POST /ghpolice/login.php
PAYLOAD - firstname="></script><script>alert('idappcomDEE')</script>


By turning this into a traffic file and matching rule, we are able to detect attempts to influence the vulnerable parameter with cross-site scripting attempts.


Idappcom has created signature 8021679 along with a traffic file.
