*** anothy_x has joined #melange10:54
meonkeysIn trying to update pages for my organization in the GSoC 2009, I keep ending up at what appears to be the "maintenance" page, and it includes a curious message about not being in maintenance mode.10:55
anothy_xwhen i view all student proposals in melange, it currently claims to be showing me proposals "t123877111961 - t123873304375". we, um, didn't get *quite* that many.10:58
anothy_xi just looked over the open issues summaries and didn't see anything that sounded like this. is this a known issue?10:58
dhaunmeonkeys: according to the melange-soc list, there are some app engine problems currently10:59

RoanKattouwHe arranged to be around to do it himself just now, but that was when the site was broken :(11:49

lhRoanKattouw: that was me who said that actually.12:05
lhborja: i believe that was an error introduced by a recently committed patch which will be reverted, but solydzajs can tell you further12:06
ErantSRabbelier: plx to go here: with both Internet Explorer and Firefox. IE will be obvious, with FF, try posting a comment, or going to another page.12:06

RoanKattouwlh: Melange is back, I just successfully created a home page. I now need to promote it to home page status without the presence of my org admin :(12:07

RoanKattouwsolydzajs: Could you help me out with a Melange problem? Our org admin was online earlier this morning to create the home page and mark it as such, but that failed because of the AppEngine breakage. When that was fixed, he'd already headed off to a meeting and he's gonna be out of town all morning. I (mentor) have created a home page but can't mark it as such, could you do that for me?12:18

SRabbelieranothy_x: perhaps it is13:53
SRabbelieranothy_x: not sure13:53
SRabbelieranothy_x: but it's likely because the proposal is now accepted/rejected13:53
*** borja has left #melange13:53

ErantSRabbelier: There's something bugging me16:39
SRabbelierErant: what's that?16:39
*** kenny87 has joined #melange16:40
ErantIt does filter 'document' from my javascript16:40
ErantImplying it knows I'm doing javascript O_o16:41
SRabbelierErant: who does?16:41
Erant<img src=javascript:document.location=...16:41
ErantIt doesn't like me when I do that16:41
ErantIt thinks I'm cute when I do <img src=javascript:location=... but that's not the point. :P16:41
Erant(I broked another one of my proposal pages this way. I'm running out. Luckily Lennie is fixing it.)16:42
SRabbelierErant: lol, weirdass16:44
ErantI'm not sure it was ment that way, but I'll take it as a compliment.16:45
MerioErant: you should use window.location.href16:45
ErantMerio: I think it won't like me if I do that either.16:45
ErantMerio: Though, do you know what we're talking about?16:45
MerioErant: or window.location document.location AFAIK is deprecated (at least in Firefox). In the page the "window" object is in the scope, that's probably why you can access it through "location"16:46
MerioErant: well, actually just guessing and willing to help if possible ^__^16:47
ErantMerio: XSS vuln. in Melange16:47
MerioErant: I wasn't aware of16:49
ErantMerio: So the wack thing is that the streamparser removes 'document' from my javascript.16:50
ErantIt would ofc. normally never do that, so I'm guessing it's aware that I'm running javascript.16:50
kblinit just doesn't trust you16:51
kblinlooking at how you're breaking things, it seems to be right ;)16:51
ErantTrust me enough to allow me to run javascript16:52
ErantIt's just limiting me16:52
ErantNot enough, obviously16:52
ErantYou can probably twist this into a make-the-user-do-anything-you-want type of deal. Not sure how yet, POST data is trickier than GET.16:54
SRabbelierErant: how come?16:55
ErantI made it log the user out already. Highly fucking annoying.16:55
SRabbelierErant: lol, brilliant16:55
ErantYeah, so that broke that proposal page. Can't go to it without logging myself out.16:55
*** giantwaffeldonke has quit IRC16:55
ErantThe other one has a location= in it, so it redirects me, so that proposal page is broken.16:56
ErantGot one left. :P16:56
ErantWhich already has broken </div> tags16:56
ErantSo it's sketchy16:56
ErantSRabbelier: The GET/POST thing? GET only requires a URL, POST will require form.submit and whatnot.16:57
SRabbelierErant: ah, true16:57
ErantSo what you gotta do is download the entire page you want to attack, inject javascript into that, and then load it.16:57
ErantOr something like that.16:57
ErantBut I've never actually written javascript, so I dunno the tricks.16:58
SRabbelierErant: firebug? :p16:58
ErantHeh :P16:59
LennieErant ftw :)16:59
Lennieyou are making lh happy :P16:59
ErantI'm pretty sure it's exploitable, too lazy to code up a PoC though.16:59
ErantI'm going with it being highly annoying, and thus needs to be fixed.17:00
ErantPeople will go "wtf" when they're logged out after visiting a certain page anyway.17:00
ErantLennie: Read the backlog?17:01
ErantLennie: I think streamparser is letting me do javascript. It might be configured incorrectly.17:01
Lenniedid I miss anything?17:01
ErantWell, it removes the entire <img> tag as soon as the javascript contains 'document', or 'eval'.17:02
lhErant: if you want to do our security i <3 you and will give you tshirts17:02
ErantKinda depends on how much time I can free up for this. I'll get back to you on this.17:04
ErantI'm no web security dude though. I mainly do embedded security.17:04
