CVE-2023-4111 Scanner Detail

PHPJabbers Bus Reservation System is a web application designed for companies providing bus reservation services. It allows users to book bus seats online, facilitating the management of reservations and ticket sales. This system is widely used by bus service providers to streamline their booking process, offering a user-friendly interface for their customers. It's implemented on websites as an efficient tool for managing bus schedules, seat availability, and customer bookings. The targeted users are businesses in the transportation sector looking to digitize and optimize their reservation workflows.

The identified vulnerability in PHPJabbers Bus Reservation System version 1.1 pertains to Cross-Site Scripting (XSS). This security flaw allows attackers to inject malicious scripts into web pages viewed by other users. Exploiting this vulnerability can lead to unauthorized access to user sessions or personal data by executing scripts in the user's browser under the guise of the trusted site. It compromises the integrity of the site and can be used to perform a variety of malicious activities.

The vulnerability arises from improper validation of user input in the 'pickup_id' parameter within the '/index.php' file. Attackers can exploit this by inserting a specially crafted script into the URL, which is then executed in the browser of anyone visiting the malicious link. This flaw demonstrates a lack of sufficient input sanitization mechanisms, enabling the execution of arbitrary JavaScript code in the context of the victim's session. It specifically affects the functionality related to location picking and seat reservation on the system.

If exploited, this vulnerability can lead to several adverse effects, including theft of cookies, session hijacking, redirection of users to malicious sites, and the display of fraudulent content. Attackers can gain unauthorized access to sensitive information, manipulate web page content, and perform actions on behalf of users without their consent. Such breaches can severely damage the reputation of the service provider and erode user trust.
