uDoctorAppointment 2.1.1 Cross-Site Scripting

Application Details

uDoctorAppointment allows doctors to register and select appropriate membership plans with different features. Patients can then access the doctor's profile before booking an appointment. The site also allows the administrator or doctor to be able to create and manage advanced schedules, and create working appointment diaries.


uDoctorAppointment is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input by multiple modules.


A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability using the 'created_at', 'created_date', 'sent_at', and 'appointment_date' parameters in a specially crafted URL to execute script in a victim's Web browser within the security context of the hosting Web site, once the URL is clicked. An attacker could use this vulnerability to steal the victim's cookie-based authentication credentials.

GET /appointments/manage?appointment_number=test1&patient_first_name,patient_last_name=test2&doctor_first_name,doctor_last_name=test3&appointment_date="></script><script>alert('idappcomDEE')</script>&but_filter=Filter


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 8022303 along with a traffic file.
